Thanks to Voltage Pictures website, a number of new images and the first poster for Mark L. Mann’s Generation Um… have hit the net.  Starring Keanu Reeves, Adelaide Clemens and Bojana Novakovic, the film “follows a day in the life of John (Reeves) and his two beautiful cohorts as they live life on the fringe, immersed in sex, drugs and indecision.  As they navigate their daily routine of bars, crowds and New York City living, they embark on a path of self-discovery.”

Hit the jump for more.

When I spoke to Reeves at last year’s Toronto Film festival, he told me:

“It takes place over 24 hours.  You follow this character named John.  It’s basically the relationship between him and two call girls.  He’s the driver and he ends up stealing a video camera and hanging with them in an apartment.  It’s kind of about the interpersonal dynamics of this family.”

Then, at last year’s AFM, I landed the official 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’m a big fan of Reeves when he’s not starring in crap like The Lake House.  The synopsis sounds cool, so I’m looking forward to checking it out.  Here’s the images and poster. Hat tip to The Playlist.
