Synopsis: River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves star in director Gus Van Sant's haunting tale of two young street hustlers: Mike Waters, a sensitive narcoleptic who dreams of the mother who abandoned him, and Scott Favor, the wayward son of a mayor and 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 of 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.
