Keanu Reeves and Carrie-Anne Moss, who first appeared together as icons of sci-fi Neo and Trinity in 1999’s The Matrix, try to put into words just how the films from the Wachowskis have changed their lives.
“Is it as big as puberty?” Reeves asks Moss.
“Maybe life-changing,” she says.
“Yeah. Life-changing puberty in The Matrix.”
Trinity: My name’s Trinity.
Neo: The Trinity? Who cracked the IRS d-base?
Trinity: That was a long time ago.
Neo: I just thought… you were a guy.
Trinity: Most guys do.
Trinity: I know why you’re here, Neo. I know what you’ve been doing… why you hardly sleep, why you live alone, and why night after night, you sit by your computer. You’re looking for him. I know because I was once looking for the same thing. And when he found me, he told me I wasn’t really looking for him. I was looking for an answer. It’s the question that drives us, Neo. It’s the question that brought you here. You know the question, just as I did.
Neo: What is the Matrix?
Trinity: The answer is out there, Neo, and it’s looking for you, and it will find you if you want it to.
