A Potential Sunset Trilogy

Before Sunset and Before Sunrise make for a nice double feature, the story of wayward lovers, American Jessie, and Frenchwomen Celine.  In Sunset, the two meet on a train and spend the night together tramping through Prague.  In Sunrise, Jessie has written a book ten years later about the experience hoping to connect with his lost love.  Sunrise, for me is a work of emotional genius, but it can’t fully be appreciated without watching Sunset first. 

Now word comes that there might be a third movie in the series, presumably picking up 10 years after Sunset.  In a recent interview with Collider, actor Ethan Hawke talked openly about potentially making another film with director Richard Linklater. This makes my day very happy. [via]
