Almost Famous

Former rock critic Cameron Crowe delves into the past with this affectionate story centering on high school student Patrick Fugit, who aspires to cover the rock scene in the early 1970s. He bluffs his way into an assignment for Rolling Stone magazine, and is soon covering the band Stillwater... and their drug-induced offstage antics on tour. Billy Crudup, Kate Hudson and Frances McDormand star.
