Overview
It's the backstage pass of a lifetime when teenage reporter William Miller lands an assignment from Rolling Stone magazine. Despite the objections of his overly protective mother, William hits the road with the up-and-coming rock band Stillwater.

With the help of gorgeous "band aid" Penny Lane, William is drawn into the band's inner circle and finds there's a lot more to write home about than the music.

Featuring Academy Award®* nominated performances by Kate Hudson and Frances McDormand and a superb showing by Philip Seymour Hoffman, Almost Famous is a "delightful coming-of-age comedy" (David Ansen, Newsweek)

*2000 Academy Award® Winner: Writing (Screenplay Written Directly for the Screen).
Additional nominations: Actress in a Supporting Role (Kate Hudson); Actress in a Supporting Role (Frances McDormand), Film Editing.
