‘Generation Um…’ Trailer: Keanu Reeves Returns to His Normal State — Lost and Confused

Generation Um

More like Generation Uh, What? In Mark L. Mann‘s Generation Um…, Keanu Reeves apparently reaches the nexus of his career as he plays John, a shiftless New Yorker who spends his time as a driver for an escort service. Perhaps all you need to know about John’s career is that he drives his “party girls” around in an old station wagon; you see, things aren’t going so well for either John or his main hangs, Violet (Bojana Novakovic) and Mia (Adelaide Clemens), but everything takes a sharp left turn when John steals a camcorder and sets about recording his dismal life.

It looks depressing as hell.

Check out the first ennui- and crime-filled trailer for Generation Um… after the break.

Generation Um… opens on May 3rd. [Apple]
