ALMOST FAMOUS

DEBUTING ON 4K ULTRA HD

Writer/Director Cameron Crowe’s feelgood coming-of-age movie  ALMOST FAMOUS, starring Kate Hudson (How to Lose a Guy in 10 Day, Mother’s Day ), Billy Crudup (Where’d You Go, Bernadette, TV’s “The Morning Show”), Frances McDormand (Nomadland, Three Billboards Outside Ebbing Missouri), Anna Paquin (The Piano, X-Men) and Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Hunger Games: Mockingjay Parts 1 and 2, Capote) is available for the first time on 4K Ultra HD on July 12 courtesy of Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

Rolling Stone magazine unwittingly hires 15-year-old William (Patrick Fugit), an aspiring journalist, after they read an article he wrote for Creem magazine. ALMOST FAMOUS is the hilarious and touching story of this intelligent young man’s journey into the world of rock and roll as he tours with Stillwater, an up-and-coming band struggling with their rise to fame.

ALMOST FAMOUS was nominated for 4 Academy Awards® and was winner of Best Original Screenplay (Cameron Crowe, 2000).

Set in 1973, ALMOST FAMOUS chronicles the funny and often poignant coming-of-age of 15-year-old music fanatic William (Patrick Fugit). Having managed to land an assignment from Rolling Stone magazine to interview the up-and-coming band Stillwater, fronted by lead guitarist Russell Hammond (Billy Crudup) and with the help of gorgeous ‘’band aid’’ Penny Lane (Kate Hudson), William finds himself drawn into the band’s inner circle, despite the objections of his over-protective mother (Frances McDormand). As he becomes less an observer and more a participant in the band’s dynamics, William learns a life-changing lesson about the importance of family – the ones we inherit and the ones we create.
