Ethan Hawke in Bucharest for the premiere of Before Midnight

Actor Ethan Hawke will be back to Bucharest June 26 for the premiere performance in Romania of his latest film, Before Midnight, which opened in the US last April. Before Midnight carries on the love story  between Celine (Julie Delpy) and Jesse (Ethan Hawke) that began 18 years when the two met in a Vienna-bound train, in the film Before Sunrise, and Before Sunset, nine years afterwards. The Before It’s Too Late event is organized to the benefit of poor children helped by the OvidiuRo Association, founded by the actor’s mother, Leslie Hawke, and Maria Gheorghiu. The film makes the link between the Before series and the destinies of those children, for which early education is of essence. „I’m convinced that the supporters of the program Each child in Kindergarten, which received multiple awards for its results, will love Before Midnight. I’m glad I was able to bring the film to Romania,” says Leslie Hawke. The film will have its premiere on Wednesday, June 26, 8.00 pm, and will be preceded by a VIP reception at 6.30 pm. Ethan Hawke and the film’s director, Richard Linklater, will attend a questions and answers session after the film’s projection at Children’s Palace. The event will wrap up with a Nostalgia theme-party, with participants invited to perform it through their clothing. The money from premiere, discussion session and party tickets will help a child attend kindergarten for one month.  Tickets are priced at RON 150 each. Tickets including the VIP reception with Hawke, Linklater and other guests cost 300 euro each and will help a child attend kindergarten for one year.
