Did You Know? That while Julie Delpy and Ethan Hawke are formally given credit for co-writing “Before Sunset” and “Before Midnight”, it is a little known fact that they were also responsible for rewriting the majority of the script for “Before Sunrise”.
The idea however– for the first movie, “Before Sunrise” came from a night Director Richard Linklater spent walking around Philadelphia with a woman he met named Amy. Contrary to the movie, they stayed in touch for a while, until contact was lost. Linklater never heard from her again (not even when he became a director and released Before Sunrise). It wasn’t until years later that he found out that Amy had died in a traffic accident a few years after they had met.
