Set in 1973, a pivotal time in the history of rock and roll, Almost Famous chronicles the funny and poignant coming of age of 15-year-old William (Patrick Fugit). When his love of music lands him an assignment from Rolling Stone to interview up-and-coming band Stillwater-fronted by guitarist Russell Hammond (Billy Crudup) and singer Jeff Bebe (Jason Lee)-William embarks on an eye-opening journey on tour with the band, over the objections of his protective mother (Frances McDormand). With the help of the lovely "band-aid" Penny Lane (Kate Hudson), William finds himself being drawn into the band's inner circle. But as the young reporter loses the objectivity required to tell his story honestly, he learns a life-changing lesson about the importance of family-the ones we inherit, and the ones we create.

Great, but lots of sex, drugs, and rock 'n' roll.
