The upcoming movie THE PRIVATE LIVES OF PIPPA LEE was written and directed by Rebecca Miller, daughter of playwright Arthur Miller and wife of actor Daniel Day-Lewis. The story follows 50-year-old housewife Pippa as she and her husband Herb move from an independent life in New York to a quiet retirement community. Thirty years her senior, Herb is ready for this transition but Pippa is not.
Mulling over her own hard upbringing and rebellious teen years, Pippa begins to confront the fact that she never discovered herself and is now at a point where her husband is so old he's about to pass on and her children are grown and don't need her anymore. All this leads to her sleepwalking and slowly heading for a breakdown. In the retirement community she meets a man in his thirties who has moved in with his mother due to marital difficulties. The character's name is Chris and he works at the convenience store where the somnambulant Pippa is buying her cigarettes. Played by Keanu Reeves, he becomes Pippa's confidant and lover.
Chris (Reeves) just happens to have a tattoo of Jesus on his chest. A really large tattoo of Jesus. The design goes from waist to neck and is monochrome (all black and white). It appears that Jesus is opening his shirt or jacket and the navel of the tattooed figure is Reeves' own belly button. No word yet on how this tattoo is important to this character or if it figures symbolically in the story. Keep your eyes peeled at the 1:24 mark of the trailer below for the best view of it.
