DP/30: Ethan Hawke, Part 2: The "Before" Trilogy

by DP/30: The Oral History Of Hollywood

There are few events in film history in which 3 movies mark 14 years in the life of 2 characters, much less the life of 2 actors and a director. But that is the achievement of the “Before” trilogy; Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, and Before Midnight for Richard Linklater and his partner actor/writers, Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke. Ethan spoke to David Poland about his history with the series and how it has changed his career and life.
