Before Midnight | Ratings & Reviews

"It’s doubtful that anyone cares more for longitudinal love birds Jesse and Celine than Richard Linklater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, for this third entry in the Before series continues to treat them with devoted dignity, even when life threatens to render their devotion less dignified."

Flicks, Liam MagurenFlicks

"Honoring all that was memorable about its forebears while taking the story to new depths of catharsis, Before Midnight stands as a unique and uniquely satisfying entry in what has shaped up to be an outstanding screen trilogy."


"A more-than-worthy, expectations-exceeding chapter in one of modern cinema’s finest love stories. As honest, convincing, funny, intimate and natural as its predecessors."

Total FilmTotal Film

"That’s the subtle level this movie operates on, and by the time it arrives at its powerhouse climax, a ruinous argument in a hotel room where all lingering doubts are finally and furiously outed, there’s nowhere left for them to ramble. They’re pinned down and have to improvise, but this glorious movie has infinite space to roam."

Time OutTime Out

"Before Midnight is intimate and intelligent, and also undemanding in the best possible way."

The GuardianThe Guardian

"Predictably, it's just as great as the first two."

Little White LiesLittle White Lies

"Though this stage is harder to watch, audiences who have aged along with Celine and Jesse will treasure this new episode."

Hollywood ReporterHollywood Reporter

"A bit tarter than its predecessors, but not skimping on their woozy, chatty charm, this perfectly played, gently incisive film is a welcome new chapter in one of cinema’s most beguiling ongoing romances. See it with someone you’ve loved for some time."

Empire MagazineEmpire Magazine

"A rich, smart, funny, sometimes acidic portrayal of a couple who can be spectacular when they’re in tune — and toxic when they’re at each other’s throats."
