I found this film when I was checking what else directors of the original “Twin Peaks” series have made. Keanu Reeves and Tim Hopper’s names further caught my attention. “River’s Edge” is one of Reeves’ first full-length films.
The film follows some troublesome kids in a small community. When one kills a class-mate, the group is tossed between loyalty to friends and the memory of the class-mate.
Hunter made an alright film about youngsters who care little about what their parents think, but who eventually have to ‘give in to real life’.
