    One of my favorite movies, this semi-autobiographical Cameron Crowe film follows William (Patrick Fugit) as he tours with up-and-coming band Stillwater for an article with Rolling Stone magazine. It has a lived-in feel, from his interactions with Band Aid leader Penny Lane (Oscar-nominee Kate Hudson) and Lester Bangs (the great Philip Seymour Hoffman) to band infighting over a t-shirt design to the rigors of touring. All in all, a love letter to rock journalism and rock 'n roll itself in the early 70s.
