Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves are starring in a rom-com together, and this is the ’90s pairing of our dreams
Sadly, the world has been a bit lacking in rom-coms lately. Nancy Meyers throws us a bone occasionally. Every so often a new attempt to revitalize the high school movie pops up. But the genre as a whole hasn’t shown a ton of signs of life in recent years. But now, there’s a new hope! And a super nostalgic one at that.
We’re talking an all new romantic comedy starring Winona Ryder and Keanu Reeves.
The premise is so good we’re basically going to camp outside of a movie theater until it’s released.
"Destination Wedding, directed by Victor Lyon, stars Reeves and Ryder as two unhappy, wholly unpleasant wedding guests who connect over their mutual misery. In spite of their better judgement, they find themselves falling for each other."
Ummm, sign us UP. Winona Ryder, ’90s princess and edgy queen of our hearts, opposite Keanu Reeves? Bitter and bantering at a wedding? And then falling in love? Begrudgingly? Honestly, it’s everything we never knew we wanted.
Although this pairing might be a little surprising, it’s obvi not the first time the duo has shared a screen.
They previously starred in Bram Stoker’s Dracula and A Scanner Darkly, so their onscreen chemistry is pre-vetted. Plus, Reeves has already given us all the feels in the genre. Because, hello, The Lake House.
In fact, we love this so much we’re declaring August 30th as national Winona and Keanu Bringing Back the Rom-Com Day forever and ever. So, time to start celebrating, people!
