Former rock critic Cameron Crowe delves into his 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, Frances McDormand, Jason Lee, and Philip Seymour Hoffman as legendary rock critic Lester Bangs also star. 123 min.
