Theatr Mwldan Film Society presents ‘Before Midnight’ (15) on October 20, 6pm.

Richard Linklater’s third instalment, following Before Sunrise and Before Sunset, in his ongoing character study of American Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and French Céline (Julie Delpy) further explores the relationship between the pair as they now enter their 40s. As youthful ideals collide with the responsibilities of middle-age, this packs a killer emotional punch, easily shifting it to the most heavyweight of the series so far.

It’s a satisfying, meaty and mature film, with pitch perfect performances and razor sharp dialogue showcased by Linklater’s stripped-to-the-bone filmmaking.
