Henry's Crime's emerging star: middle-aged Keanu Reeves

A falsely accused ex-con (Keanu Reeves) plots his first real robbery in Henry's Crime

Reeves is getting a tad jowly now, physique likewise surrendering to gravity. This could be great for him: he's made his money already, maybe he can now surrender to being something more-less-other than a box-office behemoth. Costner managed it with The Upside of Anger (2005) and The Company Men (2010), while still playing the occasional lead (albeit in flops). The critical success he's had as middle-aged losers after a run of critically disclaimed variably-superheroes could be Ted-slash-Neo's own, if he's willing to surrender glamour that much. He'd hardly be the first huge movie star to finally get some respect thataway. But he might be the (still) cutest.

 

HENRY'S CRIME opens Fri/15 in Bay Area theaters.
