Before Sunrise (1995)

Tuesday, November 23 @ 7pm

The Northwest Montana History Museum is happy to announce the next Movie Night at the Museum on Tuesday, November 23, with the 1995 romantic drama Before Sunrise!

The synopsis of the film is absurdly simple. Jesse (Ethan Hawke) and Céline (Julie Delpy) as meet on a train and spend a night wandering around Vienna. That’s it. But within this humble plot, director Richard Linklater deftly paints a vivid picture of humanity, exploring themes of cynicism, romance, self discovery, and the passage of time. Before Sunrise is rated R for strong language. 

As a director, Richard Linklater is known for loosely-structured narratives and an overly-ambitious filmmaking style. His debut film, 1990’s Slacker, is nothing more than a series of unconnected vignettes filmed around the Austin, Texas, area, but has since been named to the National Film Registry by the Library of Congress. 2014’s Boyhood was famously filmed over a twelve-year span with the same characters and plot narrative. And Before Sunrise was followed by two sequels, each filmed and set nine years after the preceding film: 2004’s Before Sunset (which also takes place in real-time) and 2013’s Before Midnight.

Everyone is always welcome at the Northwest Montana History Museum. However, if you have a cough, a fever, or are just feeling under the weather, we kindly ask that you visit us some other time; not only for your own health, but for the well-being of our staff and other supporters.
