Note: The following text may contain spoilers

BEFORE MIDNIGHT is the third film in the trilogy directed by Richard Linklater following a couple who met seventeen years ago on a train, who are now living together with two young children.

Language

The film contains infrequent very strong language ('c**t') and strong language ('f**k').

Sex

The strong sex occurs during a scene in which a man kisses and nuzzles a woman's breasts as they appear about to have sex.

There are strong sex references throughout, including a woman making a 'blowjob' gesture with her hand, a reference to people being 'porn-addled', and a woman saying she will "never suck another Turkish cock", after seeing some defaced paintings in a church. During a huge argument, a woman also says that her partner likes "to have sex the exact same way every time. Kissy kissy, titty titty, pussy... ". She also makes reference to potentially getting "ass-raped in Pigalle" in order to get a point across, but it is clear this did not actually happen.
