Sony Pictures Classics Buys Sundance 2013 Favorite 'Before Midnight'

Briefly: In a move that was certainly expected, but still wholly satisfying, Sony Pictures Classics has announced their purchase of all North American and UK rights to Richard Linklater's romantic sequel Before Midnight, the follow-up to Before Sunrise and Before Sunset starring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy. The press release says, "At Sundance 2013 with 'Before Midnight', we have further confirmation that Richard Linklater is a film master at the peak of his form." Not one person hasn't been talking about Before Midnight here at Sundance, and it's the favorite film for many attendees, including myself. Read my glowing review here where I think it may be the best romance of all time, and stay tuned for any release date info.
