Sombody tweeted 6 hours ago that he was going to the wrap party for Generation Um. So they're done filming, then. *sniff* And I was having so much fun following the shoot. The New Yorkers made it so easy to virtually be there.

UM, WHAT'S IT ABOUT? How does Keanu Reeves describe the plot of The Um Generation? With, appropriately, a lot of thought and pauses.

"To me it works in a way that's not quite literal," he says of the low-budget indie that he just filmed in New York City.

As for what the 'Um' of the title signifies, he says, "It's an invented phrase that kind of works in conjunction with the piece itself "¦ It could mean 'I don't know what to say' or it could mean you're looking for a word. I play a driver for these girls who live together who are escorts. These people are on the edge of society and we get to know more about them and who they are to each other.

"It's a lot about inherited disposition from abuse. It's a family of circumstance coming from abuse "¦ It's a $1.7 million budget, down and dirty -- 20 days in Manhattan and Brooklyn. It's good. It's a great script."

Still, strong screenplay or not, the 46-year-old Reeves realizes how difficult it is for small films to breakout and find both distribution and then an audience. In recent years, he has divided his time between big-budget studio films and indies such as Thumbsucker, A Scanner Darkly to The Private Lives of Pippa Lee. The latter barely received a release at all.

Sighs Reeves, "It's the economics of cinema."

If "Generation Um" will be just a little like "A Scanner Darkly" it is a worthy film, it will surely find its audience!

First poster for Generation Um:

Tagline: It’s about today. And how life could be different tomorrow. Or maybe not.

Synopsis: "generation Um…" follows a day in the life of John (Keanu Reeves) and his two beautiful cohorts, Mia and Violet, as they wander through their life, immersed in sex, drugs and indecision. When John steals a video camera, he finds inspiration in his directionless life. He turns the lens on Mia and Violet and the girls start to open up about their past and how it has informed their present lives. As they navigate their daily routine of bars, crowds and New York City living, they embark on a path of self-discovery.

I'll see it, just to watch cowboys with balloons chasing Keanu. :)

Wow, another Keanu-spawn named John. XD

Um, Ani, where's Generation Um on the kmdb? Just wondering. :)

Oh yeah, this should probably be under the website technical stuff but a few of the banners refuse to display. Or maybe it's just my computer. :/

good point; I'll add it!

And yeah - I noticed the banner thing too but never figured out where the broken link was. I'll try doing a more in-depth investigation when I get home.

I don't know if I'll see it. But I'd love to come visit NY and I would be happy to stay with you, Adri. But I doubt I'll be able to do that anytime soon. Got other stuff to do.

to the pap/reporter taking the photos, I presume :D
he didn't seem happy about two of the photos...but it looks like in the end he accepted the inevitable ;)

I'm sorry he had to be pestered by paps even while working. In the same time, I do enjoy watching those glimpses of the actor at work... dichotomy, I know :D

No, I hadn't - I also wonder about the recipient of that!!!
I couldn't dowload it either so I did a screen print and cut it out. Here you have it!

;-) :D
