Starring Keanu Reeves, Laurence Fishburne, and Carrie-Anne Moss, The Matrix depicts a dystopian future in which humanity is unknowingly trapped inside a simulated reality.

The Wachowski Brothers’ 1999 classic won four academy awards and has been praised by critics, filmmakers and authors of science fiction –especially for its spectacular action scenes and its ground-breaking special effects–.
