Romantic comedy about six of Seattle's young people, most of whom live in the same apartment building and whose lives revolve around the city's ever-expanding music scene. The inter-related stories about each character's progress through the singles scene are intriguing and often very funny, and the soundtrack is a grunge fanatic's dream, with the likes of Soundgarden, Pearl Jam and Mudhoney.

Based on a script that Cameron Crowe
originally wrote in 1984, which took place in Phoenix, Arizona. After Andrew Wood
, the lead singer of Seattle bands Malfunkshun and Mother Love Bone, died of a drug overdose in January, 1990, Crowe noticed the music community in Seattle coming together to process the loss. He rewrote his script with the incident in mind, changing its setting to Seattle, which had been the location of his previous movie, Say Anything...
(1989). See more
