Reality Bites is a 1994 American romantic comedy-drama film written by Helen Childress and directed by Ben Stiller. It stars Winona Ryder, Ethan Hawke and Stiller, with supporting roles by Janeane Garofalo and Steve Zahn. The plot follows Lelaina (Ryder), an aspiring videographer working on a documentary called Reality Bites about the disenfranchised lives of her friends and roommates. Their challenges exemplify some of the career and lifestyle choices faced by Generation X. In the years since the initial release of the film, it has achieved cult status and has been singled out as one of the films that captured the zeitgeist of the early 1990s grunge scene among 20-somethings, while also bringing attention to various issues that plagued young Americans at the time.
The film's soundtrack includes songs by U2, Lenny Kravitz, World Party, Squeeze, The Knack (a remixed version of "My Sharona" featured prominently in one scene from the film), Juliana Hatfield, Dinosaur Jr. and Crowded House in addition to the runaway hit "Stay (I Missed You)" by Lisa Loeb, which earned Loeb the distinction of being the first artist to top the Hot 100 before being signed to any record label.
"A fine slice of twentysomething alternative pop from the 1990s, the soundtrack to Reality Bites presents the finest of the decade's mainstream alternative pop artists. Crowded House, the Juliana Hatfield 3, and U2 all shine with previously released tracks, Lenny Kravitz turns in a solid new number, Dinosaur Jr. hands in a strong B-side, and World Party offers the sublime musical in-joke 'When You Come Back to Me,' where they rearrange David Bowie's 'Young Americans' for the '90s." - AllMusic
