    The Matrix Resurrections


    To the Boy Who Fell in Love with The Matrix at 14

    Who saw, in those opening minutes,
    Trinity leap an impossible distance
    And wanted to fly

    "The first sound to pierce the night is a father slamming a door. He’s just found his son Kevin (Lucas Paul) injured, crying, having fallen down a flight of stairs in the night. A daughter, Kaylee (Dali Rose Tetreault), covertly watching cartoons in her bedroom, reflexively turns the television off when she hears her father’s footsteps approach soon after. The specifics of Kevin and Kaylee’s home life are rarely made more concrete than this, but in moments like these, director…
