The cast of "Reality Bites" got together a couple of days ago at the Tribeca Film Festival to celebrate the films 25th anniversary
The cast of Reality Bites,including Winona Ryder, Janeane Garofalo, Ethan Hawke, and Ben Stiller (who also served as director) reunited in front of hundreds of passionate fans on Saturday afternoon and looked back on the landmark comedy.
The film follows Lelaina (Ryder), an aspiring documentarian who shuns corporations and fights the good fight against the man, and her pals played by Ethan Hawke, Janeane Garofalo, Steve Zahn. Stiller stars a suit-wearing “yuppie” vying for Lelaina’s affections, becoming a romantic rival to Hawke’s character Troy.
Despite largely resembling the classic rom-com, the story tackles prominent issues from the decade — coming out as gay, the AIDs epidemic, and the harsh realities of the job market among them.
There was even a surprise performance by Lisa Loeb after the movie ended (perfect!!!)
"The Rewatchables" just did a great podcast breaking down the film - and everything it's meant the last 25 years
And of course....the trailer
