‘Sometimes’ a great notion

Indie pic makes arthouse splash

Hapas (Hawaiian term for half, used racially) and other onlookers partied and schmoozed the night away at Hailie’s in Pasadena after the Laemmle Playhouse premiere of “Charlotte Sometimes” on Friday.

“To me, movies are unforgettable because they somehow approximate the complexity of life,” helmer Eric Byler said. “My bridge to writing films is to find a way to make them as complex and nuanced as life is.”

Revelers included the pic’s Eugenia Yuan, Michael Idemoto, Jacqueline Kim and Matt Westmore, along with thesps from another current Asian indie hit, “Better Luck Tomorrow.”
