Have you ever had a dream that you were so sure was real? What if you couldn't awaken? How would you know the difference between dream and reality? Back in 1999, a generation of unsuspecting moviegoers were asking themselves these hard-hitting questions as they flocked to this innovative sci-fi film. Twenty years laters, follow us down the rabbit hole as we kick off our Party Like It's 1999 series.
When a beautiful stranger (Carrie-Ann Moss) leads computer hacker Neo (Keanu Reeves) to a forbidding underworld, he discovers the shocking truth--the life he knows is the elaborate deception of an evil cyber-intelligence. Neo joins legendary and dangerous rebel warrior Morpheus (Lawrence Fishburne) in the battle to destroy the illusion enslaving humanity.
