Here’s an unprepared film that’s already got my money, guaranteed: a regretful comedy starring Keanu Reeves and Winona Ryder. They’re personification miserable marriage guest in writer-director Victor Levin‘s (5 to 7) Destination Wedding, that has already wrapped shooting. The regretful comedy is a fourth time Reeves and Ryder have finished a film together, following Coppola’s Bram Stoker’s Dracula, A Scanner Darkly, and The Private Lives of Pippa Lee.
Below, learn some-more about a Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves regretful comedy.
Here’s a central logline for a project: “Destination Wedding tells a story of dual miserable and upsetting marriage guests, both pariahs during this affair, who rise a mutual love notwithstanding themselves. But to act on those feelings would be to trust wish over experience, a ridiculous choice indeed.” If one twin could make an assembly caring for dual miserable and upsetting characters in a regretful comedy, it’s Reeves and Ryder. In further to only being unusually gifted actors, they’re both impossibly amiable and fun shade presences. They’re starring in a comedy, so we suppose their glamour will be put to use. With a good story, it’s easy to suppose them doing good work together, as they have finished in a past.
Coppola’s Dracula is their some-more famous collaboration, though they were glorious in A Scanner Darkly, Richard Linklater’s instrumentation of Philip K. Dick’s novel. They helped move a large regretful weight to that film as Bob Arctor and Donna Hawthorne, dual characters who cared deeply about one another. Reeves and Ryder have some good moments together in that film, generally towards a end. I’m struggling to remember if they common any scenes in Rebecca Miller’s The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, though we do vividly remember how illusory Reeves is in that film, in that he showed a totally opposite side of himself. Recently on a podcast, we listened him contend that The Private Lives of Pippa Lee, A Scanner Darkly, and Thumbsucker are 3 of his obtuse seen cinema he hopes some-more people continue to discover.
With Destination Wedding, Ryder and Reeves are starring in Levin’s sophomore bid as a filmmaker. He formerly directed 5 to 7, a regretful comedy starring a late Anton Yelchin, Bérénice Marlohe, Olivia Thirlby, and Glenn Close; it was enjoyed by many critics. As a author and executive producer, Levin has worked on Survivor’s Remorse, Mad About You, and Mad Men. His initial and final film landed some top-notch talent, and a same goes for his subsequent effort.
We can supplement Destination Wedding to a list of Reeves and Ryder projects to keep on a radar. Ryder, of course, earnings in season 2 of Stranger Things later this year. As for Reeves, he has John Wick: Chapter 3 in a pipeline. He’s been murdering it in movement cinema lately, though I’m vehement to see how he’ll act in a rom-com these days, generally with Ryder during his side.
Just a other night, we held a few of Reeves’ scenes from Something’s Gotta Give on HBO. He has a low-key, indifferent glamour that unequivocally helped rouse and belligerent that mostly extended rom-com. He’s really mostly easy to base for in movies, so who improved to play a miserable renegade during a wedding?
