Watch: Almost Famous

There are very few movies that come out that affect me the way Cameron Crowe’s “Almost Famous” has. I remember the first time I saw it: I was home on a Saturday night in 2003 and it premiered on ABC for the first time. I had nothing else to do and even though I had no prior knowledge of the movie, I decided to watch it anyway and it was the best decision I had made in a while. The comedy-drama tells the story of a 15 year old boy growing up in the 70s, who gets hired by Rolling Stone to write an article about an up-and-coming fictional band named Stillwater, which requires him to go on tour with the band. While traveling around the country, William learns about the ins and out of the music world; all the sex, drugs, and rock and roll of it, while learning about himself along the way.

Being a Cameron Crowe film, the script is automatically well-written, so well-written that he won an Oscar for it. There is a slew of newcomers in this movie, most notably Kate Hudson giving a charming performance as Penny Lane. Also, the movie has one of the greatest soundtracks, which accompanies several iconic scenes like the “Tiny Dancer” sing-a-long and Penny dancing alone in a trashed room while Cat Steven’s “The Wind” plays in the background.  Basically, amazing writing, amazing actors, amazing music, amazing film. You have to check it out.
