River’s Edge

“The only reason you stay here is so you can fuck my mother and eat her food. Motherfucker. Food eater.”

A group of high school friends must come to terms with the fact that one of them killed another. A controversial look at the private lives of teenagers which brims with a gritty humanity. This is one of Keanu Reeves’s earliest roles, and one of his most soulful, River’s Edge is a haunting and often overlooked pitch-black 80s teen drama.
