Almost Famous (2000)
USA / English
"Experience it. Enjoy it. Just don't fall for it.
"A high-school boy is given the chance to write a story for Rolling Stone Magazine about an up-and-coming rock band as he accompanies it on their concert tour.
William has an overprotective mother, and his sister has already been
driven away by her refusal to accept her children's ambitions and
interests. William finds solace in his sister's music collection and
begins to dream of a life as a rock journalist. At 15 William manages
to land a assignment with Rolling Stone Magazine to interview an up and
coming band called Stillwater, and he quickly finds himself immersed in
the life his mother so desperately wanted to protect him from.
And so the story begins, as William tours with the band, we are taken
on a journey of mistrust, discovery, deceit and disappointment;
interlaced with the hard truths about the bands lifestyle of drugs,
alcohol, sex and music.
Almost Famous pulls no punches, and is a deep insight into the dream
that became an ambition, that became a harsh reality.
Packed with top class performances all round and great music score
Almost Famous delivers, and delivers with attitude and realism that is
rarely captured on film.
A must see for Fans of the genre, but there's certainly enough here for
