Genre: Comedy, Drama, Music. Dir: Jesse Peretz. Country: USA.
Rose Byrne, Chris O’Dowd and Ethan Hawke star in this charming screwball romcom about love, fandom and literally facing the music, as adapted from Nick Hornby’s bestselling novel. Annie (Byrne) is stuck in a long-term relationship with Duncan (O’Dowd) – an obsessive fan of obscure rocker Tucker Crowe (Hawke). When the acoustic demo of Tucker’s hit record from 25 years ago surfaces, its release leads to a life-changing encounter with the elusive rocker himself. An open-hearted and comic account of life’s second chances.
