Writer/director Cameron Crowe (Jerry Maguire) takes you on a heartfelt journey into the world of rock and roll circa 1973 in this "delightful coming-of-age comedy" (David Ansen, Newsweek). It's the opportunity of a lifetime when teenage reporter William Miller (Patrick Fugit) lands an assignment from Rolling Stone magazine. Despite the objections of his protective mother (Frances McDormand), William hits the road with an up-and-coming rock band and finds there's a lot more to write home about than the music. The film also boasts superb performances by Kate Hudson, Billy Crudup and Philip Seymour Hoffman, and also stars Jason Lee, Zooey Deschanel, Anna Paquin and Fairuza Balk. An Academy Award winner for Best Original Screenplay and featuring a classic rock soundtrack with music from The Who and Elton John, Almost Famous is a must-see for every generation.
