Before Midnight Alamo PSA

If you happen to be lucky enough to have Before Midnight playing in theaters near you this weekend, make sure you check it out. Obviously, you should watch Before Sunrise and Before Sunset before venturing to the theater so you get the full effect, but the third film in the indie franchise is the best movie of the year so far, and it will surely be on my year-end favorites list. Speaking of heading to the theater, Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy took the time to craft one of the infamous PSA's for the Alamo Drafthouse for people to stop talking and texting in the movie theater. These two could read the dictionary together and it'd be great.

Here's the Alamo Drafthouse PSA featuring Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy from Vimeo:

Before Midnight is written and directed by Richard Linklater, who was also behind the preceding films Before Sunrise and Before Sunset. Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy) first met on a Eurail train and experienced 14 hours of deep connection as they explored Vienna. Nine years later, Celine found Jesse at a Paris book store, the last stop on his book tour. They had one day together before he was meant to fly out that night. Now, we meet up with the two off-and-on lovers nine years later, in Greece. Sony Pictures Classics picked up the film after Sundance 2013 and it started hitting theaters this summer on May 24th.

Weirdly, I had a dude beside me that took 2 phone calls whilst sitting beside me the other night, pretty loud phone calls. He eventually left to finish the conversation after I gave him a look of disapproval. Just sort of find it a bit fucked when people spend over £10 for a ticket and decide not to even bother watching the movie.
