WATCH: Keanu Reeves Is Lost, Middle-Aged & Drives A Station Wagon In 'Generation Um...' Trailer

Keanu Reeves Generation Um

The synopsis for Generation Um... says it's set in present-day New York, but judging from the so-uncool-it's-cool station wagon in the trailer — I'm thinking 1988 Chevrolet Caprice — and usage of the"Don't hate me because I'm beautiful" line from Kelly LeBrock's classic Pantene shampoo ad, this Mark Mann-written and directed film will have a serious late-1980s vibe.

Keanu Reeves plays John, a driver for an escort agency that, presumably employs his for-hire friends, Adelaide Clemens and Bojana Novakovic.  After sleepwalking through life, he steals a camcorder and starts asking the ladies uncomfortable questions.  Presumably, the answers lead to an existential awakening, or an amateur porn video.

Although Reeves looks much younger than his 48 years, the scene of him getting the cute birthday card and check from his parents sure is unsettling.
