‘Reality Bites’ & ‘Spinal Tap’ reunions part of 2019 Tribeca Film Fest


The 2019 Tribeca Film Festival takes place April 24 – May 5 and while the slate of films hasn’t been announced yet, there will be a couple fun anniversary events for Gex X classic Reality Bites, which is celebrating its 25th anniversary, and rock mockumentary classic This is Spinal Tap, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary. For Spinal TapRob Reiner, Michael McKean, Christopher Guest and Harry Shearer will all be on hand. The Reality Bites reunion will feature director Ben Stiller along with stars Ethan Hawke, Winona Ryder, Janeane Garofalo, and Steve Zahn. “Reality Bites was a formative experience in my life. To have a 25 year anniversary screening is very exciting,” said Stiller. “I’m looking forward to seeing the whole cast, and possibly changing the ending so Michael gets Lelaina.”
