Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that Before Midnight is a smart, talky, insightful dramedy that extends the love story of Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Celine (Julie Delpy), the couple who first met and fell in love in Before Sunrise and got reacquainted in Before Sunset. This latest installment is an unflinching look at the complications of a relationship between two very complicated people -- including how to negotiate gender roles when children arrive -- and as such, may not be especially relatable for teens, though their parents will probably find much that rings true. Expect some social drinking and cigarette smoking, swearing (including "f--k" and "c--t"), and a scene in which a woman's breasts are displayed for an extended period of time.

Sexual Content

A couple is shown kissing as they're about to have sex, with the woman's top undone so her breasts are on full display. The same woman sits talking on a phone with her top still undone. Some frank discussions at the dinner table about the sex lives of couples both long-term and newly together.


A bitter argument between two people.


Strong language includes "f--k," "s--t," "prick," "t-ts," "a--hole," and one "c--t."

Social Behavior

Relationships, and people, are works in progress, and, as such, are rife with maladies and stresses both real and imagined. But honesty and commitment -- and plenty of chemistry -- can be the glue that keeps people together through the metamorphoses.


The brand Trojan is mentioned, as are Skype and Leica. Characters use iPhones.

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

Social drinking/smoking; for example, a couple is shown smoking while cooking dinner and drinking while dining.
