...aka - most favorite movie of the fall so far. One of a few movies lately that are slowly restoring my faith in teenagers.
I've never been a huge Michael Cera fan, but his standard character - shy, conflicted, earnest - is perfect for this role. His co-star Kat Dennings nails it as well.
This movie is the perfect combination of (sometimes painfully) relatable characters with a fantasy, escapist setting. Made me want to run around NYC all night looking for an amazing band, that's for sure.
Sweet, but not too saccharine. A cross between When Harry Met Sally, Almost Famous and Mean Girls.
With an amazing soundtrack.
I really need to get that soundtrack... It's on the list.
