Writer and director Cameron Crowe’s acclaimed coming-of-age story "Almost Famous Untitled The Bootleg Cut" bursts onto the scene on Blu-ray exclusively at Best Buy on January 30, 2011.
Inspired by Crowe’s real-life experiences as a teenage rock journalist in the 1970s, "Almost Famous" tells the story of William (Patrick Fugit, Saved!), a 15-year-old music fan who gets a dream assignment to travel with an up-and-coming band and write a cover story for Rolling Stone. Filled with both drama and comedy, the film is an entertaining and touching ode to 1970s rock & roll and features outstanding performances by Billy Crudup (Public Enemies), Frances McDormand (Fargo), Kate Hudson (Nine), Jason Lee (“My Name Is Earl”), Zooey Deschanel (500 Days of Summer) and Philip Seymour Hoffman (Capote).
The "Almost Famous Untitled The Bootleg Cut" Blu-ray includes the director’s cut of the film and commentary by Crowe, a making of featurette, an interview with legendary rock critic Lester Bangs, Crowe’s top albums of 1973, Rolling Stone articles from the 1970s and much, much more.
