This week's theme for TCP is about Friendship Love; and the first movie that comes to my mind regarding friendship is my all-time favorite "Reality Bites". This film was shown in the 90's era, the year of Generation X as it was known. It starred my favorite actress Winona Ryder and Ethan Hawke plays the male lead actor; and it also starred Ben Stiller. This is the film that popularized the "My Sharona" song.
Here is the story line as summarized by IMDb:
"In this study of Generation X manners, Lelaina, the valedictorian of her college class, camcords her friends in a mock documentary of posteducation life. Troy is her best friend, a perpetually unemployed musical slacker. Vickie is a manager at the Gap who worries about the results of an AIDS test, while Sammy has problems grappling with his sexuality. When Lelaina meets Michael, an earnest video executive who takes her homemade video to his MTV-like station, she must decide what she values--the materialism of yuppie Michael or the philosophical musings of Troy"
The struggle of friends after earning their college diploma as they continue to search for the perfect employment opportunities. How these young people try to maintain their friendship despite the odds they face.
