This week we discuss Reality Bites, which was Ben Stiller’s 1994 feature directorial debut. We were mere pre-teens when we first came across this film, but we still have a lot to say about it… and a lot of questions: Should Lelaina consider a new hobby outside of filmmaking? Is $400 a week a lot of money? Is Ethan Hawke vs. Ben Stiller even a debate? If your crush sings a wicked-mean cover of the Violent Femmes’ Add it Up to you in front of a club full of people, would you still go for him? So much to talk about… Welcome to our winter of discontent.
Apologies for the somewhat lower sound quality, that should be fixed for next week’s episode.
