What a fantastic film. Some beautiful shots, and great dialogue. Possibly Cameron Crowe's best film. The scene after the big fight among the band members the next day when they're driving through the country side on their bus is transcendant. When they all start singing Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" in unison...fantastic. Everything bad just goes away with a little bit of good music and friends.
This is the "true" story of Cameron Crowe's on the road adventure with a notorius rock band during the 70's while he was writing for Rolling Stone magazine at the age of 15. That kind of stress may take a toll on someone of his age, but he manages; in fact, he flourishes. He learns some life lessons, teaches some lessons of his own and grows up a lot quicker than he probably should.
With a wonderful performance from
Frances McDormand and Kate Hudson's
magical acting, it is a journey to behold. If you haven't seen this film yet, rent it now. If you have seen it, check it out again. It is an experience
to say the least.
