"A comedy about love in the '90s"

The movie "Reality Bites" was created in 1994 and stars Winona Ryder and Ethan Hawke. The movie was made during Ryder's epitome of fame and quickly became a cult hit with certain audiences and was commercially well received. This romantic comedy follows a group of newly graduated students as they begin their life in their early 20s after college. The characters face relationship issues, job woes, and the terrible reality of becoming an adult and facing the real world. Ryder's character is an aspiring videographer, who is fighting her feelings and her attraction to Hawke's character, who is a starving musical artist trying to make ends meat. The two have a long history of sexual tension between one another but have only acted on their feelings once on a drunken night.

When Ryder becomes involved with another man (up and coming Ben Stiller) who is well off, Hawke's character begins making his move for Ryder. Ryder's character must make a choice between true love and what is best for her. Should she do what is expected of her or should she take a leap of faith and venture down the road less traveled?
