Cameron Crowe’s “Almost Famous” was made in 2000, yet it is still a relevant film today. Though dated in ways of music and clothing, the theme, following what you dream about and taking risks, will never be outdated.
- This film is timeless in the way it takes its audience on a journey
- The audience can connect with the main character and can relate to his feelings of hopefulness as well as his helplessness
- The movie features actors who have been in a lot of big movie and shows, before they had done so
- The performances are quite good and make the movie have its tone of nostalgia
- Brings out a lust for the old days
- For times that were simple and carefree
- Frances McDormand nails the overprotective mother who really does have a heart
- She delivers her lines perfectly and saves the movie in places where it begins to get stale
- This movie may not hit a chord with everyone; it may not be an accurate portrayal of rock life or even journalism but it can be related to b everyone in the sense that everyone has dreams and everyone wishes they could forget all of their burdens and commitments and just fly.
