At this year’s Toronto International Film Festival, I was able to land an exclusive interview with Keanu Reeves for his movie Henry’s Crime. Premiering at the festival, Henry’s Crime stars Reeves, James Caan, and Vera Farmiga. The film was directed by Malcolm Venville and it’s about an aimless guy who ends up serving time for a bank robbery he didn’t commit. After he gets out, he decides to rob the bank for real. Things get complicated when he falls for a girl.
While you normally associate Reeves with big budget Hollywood blockbusters, you might be surprised to learn Henry’s Crime is a true indie as they don’t yet have distribution and Reeves was instrumental in getting the film made.
During the interview, Reeves talked about why he wanted to make Henry’s Crime, casting, acting techniques, upcoming projects, and a lot more. If you’re a fan of Reeves, I think you’ll like the interview as I tried to ask him some questions I’ve never heard him answer. Read or listen to what he had to say after the jump:
