Speaking to The Wrap at the Sundance Festival on Friday Delpy said: “Two years ago, I said something about the Academy being very white male, which is the reality, and I was slashed to pieces by the media. It’s funny — women can’t talk.”

Richard Linklater is well known in the film industry as one of the stand out names in indie movie making. Responsible for a wide variety of films including the decade spanning romance 'Before Sunset' (and its sequels), music fuelled comedy 'School Of Rock', social misfit drama 'Slacker', and innovative animated thriller 'A Scanner Darkly', Linklater has inspired a generation of filmmakers and scooped two Oscar nominations and numerous film festival awards along the way. After 21 years, this Texas born innovator is still thoroughly impressing, his latest project 'Boyhood' having caused a stir for its unique quality of having been filmed over thirteen years. Just what will he do next?

Julie Delpy Claims Academy Awards Is Rigged By Old Rich Men


Julie Delpy

The French-American actress and screenwriter is frustrated about the inequality that continues to surface in films today. She also claims that the “old men” within the Oscar voting committee take bribes for votes.

"We have the Golden Globes. If you could see it, you wouldn't believe that there's anything good about it. The same goes for the Oscars," Delpy told So Film, via the Irish Independent. "It's 90 percent white men over 70 who need money because they haven't done anything in a long time. You just need to give them two or three presents and they're in your pocket. It doesn't mean anything to me, so I don't really care if there are women in the selection process."

Before Midnight Review


Excellent

It's been 18 years since Hawke, Delpy and Linklater introduced us to Jesse and Celine, and their story just gets richer, funnier and more punchy each time we see them. In 1995's Before Sunrise, they were idealistic 23-year-olds. In 2004's Before Sunset, they were thinking about bigger issues, including their future. Now at age 41, they're approaching middle age and asking questions about their life choices.

We catch up with Jesse and Celine (Hawke and Delpy) on a Greek island, where they're just finishing their summer holiday. As they prepare to go home to Paris with their 7-year-old twins (Jennifer and Charlotte Prior), Jesse's 13-year-old son Hank (Davey-Fitzpatrick) is returning to his still-angry mother in Chicago. But Jesse is wishing he had more time with Hank, and floats the idea of moving to America. This makes Celine furious, since she's just about to start an exciting new job. Clearly it's time to take stock of their relationship and make some important decisions.

Watching these characters (and the actors playing them) age is fascinating, as they encounter different issues at each stage of life. It's not necessary to have seen the earlier films, because they were essentially different people back then. This movie stands on its own as a snappy, deeply resonant look at a crunch-point in a relationship, as a couple tries to decide if their still-burning passion is strong enough to carry them forward. And Hawke and Delpy deliver the dialog impeccably, with razor-sharp wit and artistic sensitivity swirling through everything they say. Watching them is a joy.

Before Midnight Delights Critics – Review Roundup


Ethan Hawke Julie Delpy

This long-running trilogy has its third film: Before Midnight. The sequel to Before Sunrise (1995) and Before Sunset (2004) - again directed by Richard Linklater and again, co-written and acted by Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy - has got the critics excited, again.

In fact, there aren't any negative reviews for this romantic epic. “Predictably, it's just as great as the first two,” say Little White Lies. “As an organic experiment in collaboration between actors and director, it is a triumph, co-created and co-owned by Delpy, Linklater and Hawke,” enthused The Guardian's Peter Bradshaw. Empire Magazine were also waxing lyrical about the film. “A bit tarter than its predecessors, but not skimping on their woozy, chatty charm, this perfectly played, gently incisive film is a welcome new chapter in one of cinema's most beguiling ongoing romances,” they write. And Time Out say “Hawke and Delpy remain as charming as ever, and their combined goofiness is more endearing than annoying.” Sky perhaps sum things the most succinctly with their review: “For those who witnessed Jesse and Celine's tentative getting together as inter railing students almost twenty years ago, it's reassuring to see them still in love.”

With a staggering 98% rating on review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, Before Midnight looks like a must-see. So if you're thinking about what to watch this weekend (the movie is released tomorrow) then there can't be another option, especially if you're taking a special someone along to the pictures.

Before Midnight Trailer


Jesse and Celine return, though their love life is not what it once was. They are now married with twin daughters, Jesse is a successful novelist and Celine is contemplating a change of career. However, it's 18 years since they first met on a train from Budapest, 18 years since they wandered around the city of Vienna throughout the night rapidly falling more in love by the strike of each hour, and 9 years since they rekindled that whirlwind romance following the release of Jesse's best-selling book about their encounter. Now in Greece, Jesse feels a little sad about seeing his son Hank fly back to his mother (Jesse's ex-wife) and he and Celine are facing increasing strain on their relationship. Despite wooing the friends they meet in Greece with the romantic tale of their relationship, Celine has doubts as to whether he is the man she once loved and whether she is still the woman he was once so enchanted by. They are given another night alone in which to enjoy each other's company, but will it just turn into a desperate struggle to save their floundering marriage?

2 Days In New York Trailer


French beauty Marion and radio presenter Mingus have a wonderfully healthy relationship at home with their children from former relationships. However, their happiness is tested on the arrival of her unconventional and mischievous family who bring with them vulgarity, casual racism and bold opinions. Among them are Rose, Marion's sexually obsessed sister; her crazy boyfriend; Marion's ex-boyfriend and her sausage loving father. Mingus starts to have second thoughts about his girlfriend who appears to have a completely different personality around her outrageous family; he even talks about his frustrations with a cardboard cut-out of his hero and US President Barack Obama. Is their relationship strong enough to survive this new and complicated situation?

2 Days In New York Review


Excellent
Delpy follows her wonderful 2007 comedy 2 Days in Paris with a sequel that perhaps isn't quite as consistent as the original. But it's both funnier and more romantic, as each character in the story catches our imaginations and our hearts.

Marion (Delpy) and her boyfriend Mingus (Rock) each have young children (Shipman and Riley) from previous relationships, and their blended family is doing just fine until Marion's dad (Julie's real dad Albert) arrives from France with her sister Rose (Landeau) and Rose's loutish boyfriend Manu (Nahon), who of course is one of Marion's exes. For two days, these three interlopers push all of Marion's and Mingus' buttons, straining their relationship to the breaking point. And their neighbours (Baker and Burton) are even more irritated.

The Hoax Review


Very Good
Everybody loves a good con artist, a guy who can bluff his way into or out of anything. He's isn't violent, not a gangster, but a smooth-talking charmer whose poker face doesn't flinch no matter how dangerous or delicate the situation gets. Lasse Hallström's latest, The Hoax, offers a portrait of such a con artist, a real-life fabulist who makes James Frey (the disgraced "non-fiction" writer behind 2003's A Million Little Pieces) and his shenanigans look like chump change.

Richard Gere, perfectly cast, plays Clifford Irving, a down-and-out writer who in 1971 wrote (and nearly got published) a fake biography of Howard Hughes. Desperate to jump-start his career, Irving duped his editor Andrea Tate (Hope Davis) and the top dogs at McGraw-Hill into believing he was not only a friend of Hughes, the notorious recluse, but that the billionaire had tapped Irving to write his life story. Smelling a publishing sensation, McGraw-Hill offered Irving a then-record publishing deal, and the writer suddenly found himself the crown prince of the publishing world.
