Jake.G’s review published on Letterboxd:
“The idea for the movie came from a night Richard Linklater spent walking around Philadelphia with Amy, a woman he met. 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 Before Sunrise (1995) was released. It was not until 2010 that he found out that Amy had died in a traffic accident before the release of the first film in the trilogy.”
The IMDb trivia section can really fuck me up sometimes.
