When Lucas is sitting on the bench as Ellie gets on the bus, when the camera is on him the guitar strap is on his shoulder. When the camera cuts to over his shoulder, the guitar strap is hanging down behind him. See more »
It's not that I don't like music, it's that I have a hard time finding a style that doesn't annoy me.

A quiet little gem . . .
Better than I thought it would be. But then, I've never seen anything that features Toni Collette that I didn't enjoy. There's a very, very small handful of screen actors that can breathe real life into any character and she is among them.
Set in Seattle and actually filmed in Seattle rather than Vancouver, B.C. (how refreshing is that?), it's the story of a rock journalist who sleeps with every musician she covers, while still pining for the one she met and fell in love with in high school who mysteriously disappeared (or killed himself?) at the height of his success 10 years earlier, leaving her bereft and crushed.
When she screws up again on her latest piece, her editor assigns her a "this is your last chance or I'm going to have to let you go" story, which is to be about tracking down what happened to the mysterious, missing legendary rocker, her former lover.
As she reluctantly begins the quest she bumps into a man she very briefly "dated" previously (Haden Church), a tech bazillionaire who now aspires to be a documentary film maker. Through a mishap they become unlikely partners in her search, with him filming the progress.
The story is about their journey into the past and her finally letting go of the relationship that's still messing up her life 10 years on.
