Open any time capsule devoted to the early 1990s and, if the curator has done it right, a shining copy of Reality Bites awaits.

The rom-com-dram features Winona Ryder (as Lelaina Pierce) fired from her production job and attempting to find herself while juggling feelings for both the angsty musician Troy Dyer (Ethan Hawke at his hottest) and a yuppie faux MTV exec played by Ben Stiller. Joining along this Generation X ride is Janeane Garofalo as the disco-loving/GAP-employee roommate with some of the best lines (“Evian is naïve spelled backwards!”) and Steve Zahn who is struggling to come out to his parents. In addition to the fantastic clothes, smoke-filled scenes, references to Melrose Place, and slackerism at its best, the movie is also responsible for Lisa Loeb’s song “Stay.”

Relive the days of overalls, John Lennon glasses, and babydoll dresses while watching Hawke sing “I’m Nuthin.”
