Almost Famous (2013)
It's all happening. That it is in Cameron Crowe's hit Academy Award winning movie. (*Best Original Screenplay) The film is semi-autobiographical, as Crowe himself was a teenage writer for Rolling Stone. It is based on his experiences touring with rock bands Poco, the Allman Brothers Band, Led Zeppelin, Eagles, and Lynyrd Skynyrd. Crowe has discussed how during this period he lost his virginity, fell in love, and met his musical heroes—these events represented in the film as happening to William Miller, the boyish main character.
Experience it. Enjoy it. Just don't fall for it.
