This post is for all the people who were teenagers in the 90's - like I was. Every girl I knew wanted to have Winona's haircut and cool vintage clothes. I have been very nostalgic of the 90's lately and Reality Bites represents it perfectly. Enjoy!
Reality Bites is a 1994 romantic comedy-drama directed by Ben Stiller - his directorial debut - and starring Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke and Ben Stiller. The supporting roles were played by Janeane Garofalo and Steve Zahn. The plot is centered around Lelaina (Ryder), an aspiring videographer working on a documentary about the lives of her friends and roommates (Hawke, Garofalo, and Zahn). It focuses on life after college, about the career and lifestyle choices of Generation X.
After completing several period pieces, Winona Ryder was drawn to Reality Bites because she was looking "for something a little more contemporary because I really wanted to wear blue jeans for a change." Janeane Garofalo said that Parker Posey, Anne Heche and Gwyneth Paltrow were all up for the role of Vickie. The studio loved and wanted Paltrow - an unknown actress at the time - but Ryder liked Garofalo after making a connection with her.
The costume designer on this movie was Eugenie Bafaloukos. Unfortunately, I didn't find any interesting facts about Bafaloukos. On the other hand, her assistant Nancy Steiner has worked on many other movies celebrated for their sense of style. To name just a few, there were The Virgin Suicides, Shopgirl and Lost in Translation. Fun fact, she was the voice of Lydia Harris in Lost in Translation.
