Before Midnight: Talk Around the Clock

<i>Before Midnight</i>: Talk Around the Clock

It's been almost ten years since we last saw Jesse and Celine -- the chatty couple played by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy for three movies now -- but it took me all of five minutes into Before Midnight to fall back in love with them. That's the unique power of this series, overseen by director Richard Linklater and written in close collaboration by him and his two stars. No matter how long the gap between movies has been or how completely the characters' lives have changed, when Jesse and Celine turn to each other and start one of their famously epic conversations, it feels like no time has passed at all.

Previewing the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival

New York's other film festival -- the one named after the fashionable Tribeca nabe, but actually unfolds all over Lower Manhattan -- returns for its 12th edition tonight, opening with the rock doc Mistaken For Strangers, a portrait of The National directed by the roadie brother of the band's lead singer. The subsequent eleven days of screenings, events and panel discussions will be just as eclectic, as Tribeca continues its mission to serve as the funky, cool little sibling to the older and more respectable New York Film Festival that unspools every year at the uptown (and upscale) Film Society of Lincoln Center. For the full schedule, visit the festival's online headquarters. In the meantime, here are some of the trends to watch for at this year's TFF.
