Reality Bites

I don’t mean to get too personal, but Reality Bites, is so my life right now.  Except for the whole love triangle,  Lelaina’s life is pretty similar to mine.  Lelaina, played by Winona Ryder, graduates from college, tries to find a good job, and has problems paying her bills.  Oh, and she wants to find a real relationship with an emotionally mature guy and she likes diet coke.

Janeane Garofalo is funny as Lelaina’s crazy, best friend, Vickie.  Ben Stiller, who also directed the film, has some of the best lines in the movie as one of Lelaina’s love interests, Michael, along with Ethan Hawke, Troy.  The confrontation that erupts between Michael and Troy over Lelaina’s “doilie” dress is awkward and  priceless.

P.S.,

There’s a cinematheque screening tomorrow!
