‘Sunset’ rises in Gotham

Linklater sequel picks up a decade after first pic

The New York premiere of “Before Sunset” — Warner Independent Pictures’ first release — was appropriately low-key and indie-like. There was no official red carpet or glam post-screening party; just a tiny cocktail party before the movie unspooled at the Directors Guild Theater in midtown.

“Before Sunrise” sequel reunites director Richard Linklater and stars Ethan Hawke and Julie Delpy, with the three penning the script. Nine years may separate the two films, but the trio seemed as tight as ever, sticking close together at the American Museum of Moving Image bow.

“What’s a decade?” Warner Independent prexy Mark Gill quipped at the cocktail gathering.
