This is the film where you can see his range of emotions. An authentic example of good acting capabilities. There were moments when you could see Matt withheld his feelings and tried not be involved, like conversations in the car. There were moments when he felt stuck, confused, then exploded, like interrogation scene in the police office. Also look how he treated his little sister with much better care than his attitude towards his parents, which implied his skepticism towards adults life. Partially, this film shows how unrestrained was Keanu performance, back in the days before he becomes famous with all of the expectations and pressure for being a celebrity. I think, this film tells an "ugly" story with a beautiful delivery.
