At the center of ALMOST FAMOUS lies a question: When it would be easier not to, do you write the truth? Cameron Crowe writes the truth in this story of a young rock journalist in the 1970s with a profound understanding that can come only from living it - and he directs with an uncommon attention to detail of time, place and character, capturing how deeply music affects us.
