His first work was the documentary, Christopher Reeve: Courageous Steps which gained massive accolades from the people.
It was followed by Christopher Reeve: Hope in Motion, and both of these documentaries were directed and produced by Matthew Reeve himself. All of these documentaries followed the life of Reeve's father and stepmother Dana Reeve after Christopher suffered from a severe spinal injury.

Relationship And Children
While his father lived a highly publicized life due to his stardom, Matthew has managed to stay away from the media. Most of his life has been hidden from the public and looks like he will continue to do so. He currently lives in Stockholm, Sweden, with his partner and has built a family for himself there.
Matthew is in a relationship with Anna Lo Westlin and the couple has been together for eight years. The pair are parents to their daughter, Auden Reeve, and baby boy/son, Sander Reeve. While Reeve has set his Instagram profile on private, his partner's page is a great source for the Reeve family pictures. Well, whether or not Anna is Matthew Reeve's wife or not is still a mystery as there are no news of them being married.
