Directed by Richard Linklater
This film lyrically answers the question “what if?” as posed by Before Sunrise. It picks up in Paris nine years after Céline and Jesse part ways, tackling this later stage of adulthood just as eloquently, and is “all one could wish for in a sequel—it enriches, glosses, and completes the original” (Village Voice). Nominated by the National Society of Film Critics, Independent Spirit, and the Academy Awards for its moving original screenplay written collaboratively by Linklater, frequent collaborator Kim Krizan, and actors Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke. 2004, 35mm, 77 minutes.
