Media Services at the Movies: Before Midnight

The summer blockbuster season is here! “Media Services at the Movies” will look at what big movie is coming out this week, then offer a few movies like it from our collection.

In a week overloaded with all sorts of explosive, insane sequels (Fast & Furious 6, The Hangover Part III, etc.), the film that stands out the most to us is the third part of Richard Linklater’s minimalist romance-drama series, Before Midnight. It’s an unusual choice for a second sequel, made even stranger by the nine-year gap between each movie. But early buzz from Sundance says it’s the best one yet. But if you want to see it, you might have to look in a smaller local theater.

In honor of Before Midnight‘s debut, try these other films from Richard Linklater and star Julie Delpy.
