Description

Cameron Crowe's career as a 15-year-old Rolling Stone magazine writer is recounted in this fascinating semi-autobiographical 2001 film. Patrick Fugit as teen journalist William Miller launches on a road trip with Stillwater, wanna-be rock band stars, and the Band-Aids, their band of girl groupies. Against the advice of Philip Seymour Hoffman as the youngster's mentor and the legendary rock critic Lester Bangs, Miller befriends the band members on their wild romp around the country. Headed by Billy Crudup as the group's lead guitarist and including its insecure singer Jason Lee, thrilling concerts and backyard debacles abound as the teenager learns about the gritty and glittery sides of the road to rock stardom. Kate Hudson shines as Band-Aids' leader Penny Lane, and Frances McDormand is a stellar Elaine, Miller's protective mom. Reflecting the nostalgia and humor of an era, with bits of pop culture and musical history thrown in, this delightful film features a classic rock soundtrack with music from The Who and Elton John. see more...

This is Kate Hudson‘s breakout role and she was suburban in it. This is a great story about a young musician and a young groupie. It had a lot of fun and exciting parts but also some sad parts as well. I think it’s a pretty accurate portrait of the life of a rockstar. Overall, the movie has a lot of heart and some really great acting. Definitely a favorite.

This movie is a must see.  If you like music, Billy Crudup, Jason Lee, Kate Hudson, and Philip Seymour Hoffman, then you will love this movie.  Even Jimmy Fallon is in this movie. 

I just perfectly captures the nostalgia of an era.

Amazing movie! The scene where they all sing Tiny Dancer on the tour bus is iconic and gave me all the feels! It's a believable period piece. It has a great ensemble cast and the soundtrack is awesome too!

Almost Famous is such a classic. The acting is so phenomenal - the cast is perfect and a couple surprising (amazing) cameos. I think it captures the era perfectly, and is just a great watch for both film and rock'n'roll/music lovers like myself.
