Picked by Flynn, Front of House

River Phoenix and Keanu Reeves star as Mike and Scott in this haunting tale about two young street hustlers. Navigating a volatile world of junkies, thieves, and johns, Mike takes Scott on a quest along the streets and open highways of the Pacific Northwest.

Flynn says: MY OWN PRIVATE IDAHO is the kind of queer, grunge, Shakespearean, outsider cinema that the world needs right now.
