Film Series: Almost Famous

2000. USA. Dir: Cameron Crowe. With Patrick Fugit, Kate Hudson. 122 min. 

The only true currency in this bankrupt world is what we share with someone else when we’re uncool.” A 15-year-old jour- nalist covering a rising band experiences the messy humanity behind the sex, drugs, and rock & roll. Crowe’s film a? clef lovingly recreates the whirlwind of the seventies’ music scene and the young hearts swept up in its wake.
