______________________________________________________________

From Nick Hornby’s best-selling novel High Fidelity, director Stephen Frears brings an amusing, true-to-life look at the trials and errors of dating and relationships. Set in Chicago (as opposed to the novel’s North London) during the 80s, the film centers around 30-something, music fanatic, record shop owner Rob (John Cusack), whose life falls apart when his latest girlfriend Laura walks out on him. With a string of ex-girlfriends behind him, Rob decides to track down his past lovers and find out what it is that makes him such a hopeless partner.

Reviews

High Fidelity is an extraordinarily funny film, full of verbal and visual wit. -Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian
