47 Ronin

The adventure drama directed by Carl Rinisch, Reeves plays Kai, a half-Japanese, half-English outcast who is picked from a forest by the Lord Ruler of Akon. After falling in love with Akon’s daughter he disguises himself to fight in place of one of the daughter’s admirers to win her hand, but he is discovered and punished. Co starring: Hiroyuki Sanada, Rinko Kikuchi, Kou Shibasaki, Tanadobu Asano.

When I first read the script, it had kind of the largesse of a Western…I was drawn to this guy who’s an outsider, who is involved in this culture but is outside of the culture and wants to belong, and who has the chance to fight for it, the way of belonging by fighting for the cause. I found that interesting and a good story.

Something’s Gotta Give

Film Appearance

Reeves plays Dr. Julian Mercer in this comedy directed by Nancy Meyers. Harry, an aged music industry executive with a fondness for younger women, suffers a heart attack at the home of his latest girlfriend’s mother, Erica. He convalesces at her home and finds himself falling for her with an unexpected rival in the form of his doctor. Co-starring Diane Keaton, Jack Nicholson, Frances McDormand and Amanda Peet.

Some people speak of this film as being age-oriented, but I would say that it’s ageless-oriented, personally. I think that it’s about taking a risk, opening up and somehow it seems so terrifying to open oneself up to another. I think that we see these two beautiful, brave people in this film, Diane Keaton and Jack Nicholson, just kind of open up to each other. We get to enjoy it and see it on screen.
