My Own Private Idaho : Wherever, whatever, have a nice day... River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves star in director Gus Van Sant's haunting tale of two young street hustlers: Mike Waters (Phoenix), a sensitive narcoleptic who dreams of the mother who abandoned him, and Scott Favor (Reeves), wayward son of the mayor of Portland and the object of Mike's desire. Navigating a volatile world of junkies, thieves and johns, Mike takes Scott on a quest from the grungy streets to the open highways to the Pacific Northwest in search of an elusive place called 'home'. Groundbreaking and visually dazzling, 'My Own Private Idaho' is a stirring look at unrequited love and life at society's margins.
