I respect and appreciate this film far more than I enjoy it, but that's not to say this film is worth missing. Some absurdly fantastic performances by Frances McDormand, the late Phillip Seymour Hoffman, a young Kate Hudson and our then-newcomer lead Patrick Fugit (who is the soul of the entire film) truly elevate this film to something special.
Whilst I don't have much nostalgia anymore for my 'Rock and Roll' teenage years (it's far less romanticised when you're a millennial) I suspect those that do will find something truly special in this film.
Also, watch out for the Drummers only line in the entire film, I was in emotional stitches.
A well crafted, well-written film with a heart of gold.
