Writer/director Cameron Crowe's affectionate, semi-autobiographical story centers on high school student William Miller (Patrick Fugit), who aspires to cover the rock scene in the early 1970s. Bluffing his way into an assignment for Rolling Stone magazine, William is soon accompanying the band Stillwater on tour-and immersing himself in the wild world of sex, drugs, and rock and roll. With Billy Crudup, Kate Hudson, Frances McDormand, Jason Lee, and Philip Seymour Hoffman as legendary music critic Lester Bangs. Director's cut; 161 min.
