Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy are seen again as Jesse and Celine in this adorable video
As fans of the Before trilogy wonder whether Richard Linklater will drop a fourth movie in 2022, one determined admirer took matters in his own hands. Rob Stone, a particularly devout fan, made a two minute video putting together interview clips of the stars- Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy.
The video incorporates footage from the Q&As that Hawke and Delpy did with Cameron Bailey for TIFF (Toronto International Film Festival) Originals on April 30 and May 12 respectively.
Playing Kath Bloom’s Come Here in the background, this video was intended to recreate the record booth scene from Before Sunrise. Aptly titled Before the End, the clips of the actors joining via video conferencing invoke a sense of what the star-crossed lovers would do during the coronavirus pandemic.
The Before trilogy comprises of three films directed by Richard Linklater, released at nine year intervals: Before Sunrise (1995), Before Sunset (2004), and Before Midnight (2013). The director won the Silver Bear at the Berlin International Film Festival for the first installment.
The films follow the relationship of Jesse (Hawke) and Celine (Delpy) through different stages of their lives, a romance forged on the Euro-rail surviving the test of time and distance.
