High Fidelity

by Stephen Frears
A movie for music lovers

Based on the book of the same name by Nick Hornby, High Fidelity is a comedy aimed at music lovers and Generation X'ers. If you've ever worked at or even been inside of a record store, you will likely have met some of the quirky characters in this film. The movie follows Rob (played by John Cusack), the owner of a record store in downtown Chicago. Surrounded by his weird employees (one of which, played by Jack Black, practically steals the show) and annoying customers, Rob is miserable, especially following a messy breakup with his live-in girlfriend. Through Cusack's fantastic fourth wall breaking narrative, Rob makes his way through a list of his "top-five all-time greatest break-ups", among many other top-five lists. The soundtrack is the backbone of the film, with great tracks throughout that range from classics like Aretha Franklin and Stevie Wonder, to newer artists like The Beta Band and Stereolab. Like the music, the laughs here are constant, and with cameos and bit parts by many great actors and musicians (of which Tim Robbins takes the cake), High Fidelity is sure to get a smile stuck on your face and a song stuck in your head.
