Rating:
R
Before Sunset is long awaited sequel to Before Sunrise from original Austin director Richard Linklater (Dazed and Confused, The Newton Boys, The Bad News Bears, Waking Life, A Scanner Darkly). Before Sunset reunites the main characters Jesse (Ethan Hawke, Gattaca, Daybreakers, Explorers, Training Day, Dead Poets Society, Alive, Quiz Show, White Fang) and Celine (Julie Delpy, Killing Zoe, Three Colors, The Three Musketeers, An American Werewolf in Paris) nine years after their first fateful meeting in Vienna. Jesse has become a bestselling author with his autobiographical work based on their time together and is traversing Europe promoting it when he runs into his lovely stranger once again during a short window of time, at the end of which she'll be heading back to the States and out of his life yet again. Much has changed in each other's lives since last they were together, and the two use the short precious moments they have together to chew over the status of their lives and rekindle the striking friendship they forged all those years ago.moreless
