CHERISE REEVES' EXCELLENT ADVENTURE
A mockumentary style comedy about one mad woman's obsession
Shot like a documentary, with interviews and flashbacks in the style of the 7 UP series, we visit Cherise and her family every four years to see what has changed. Although most of her family and friends move on with their lives, Cherise is stuck as a perpetual teenager, living vicariously through the films of her idol and keeping alive the fantasy that someday they will be together.
Cherise was brought up to believe she was special, albeit by her insane mother,who receives messages from the beyond through her talking Han Solo doll. But when a ouija board tells her the cryptic name of her true love is K-E-A-N-U, it only makes sense when Bill and Ted’s Excellent Adventure hits the local multiplex and an epic obsession is born.
But how is a girl from small town Australia meant to meet the American superstar she is destined to marry? After several aborted attempts, including a mad trip to a massive American Sci-Fi convention, Cherise finds herself thwarted at every turn by the jealous and zealously protective Keanu Reeves Fan Club president, who doesn’t want anyone getting close to Mr Reeves unless it’s her. Coming back to her hometown broke and still no closer to meeting – let alone marrying – her idol, Cherise, in one last ditch effort, gathers a group of like-minded nut cases to stage her own Matrix convention.
