This gorgeous boxset has been out for a while in the US, but thankfully we’ve now got a release of Richard Linklater’s greatest masterpieces together. Before Sunrise (1995), Before Sunset (2004) and Before Midnight (2013) tell the beguiling love story between Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Céline (Julie Delpy) over an 18 year period from young lovers to lost adults. The films are all 5 star gems, but this set also features some incredible added extras including a newly restored 2K digital transfer of Before Sunrise and Sunset, and a 2K digital master of Before Midnight approved by director Richard Linklater himself. Behind-the-scenes footage and interviews, audio commentaries, feature-length documentaries on the films and essays from critics and scholars makes this Criterion edition a must-have.
