Synopsis

Annie (Rose Byrne) lives in a small British village near London. For the past 15 years, she's been in a relationship with Duncan (Chris O'Dowd), who never stops talking about his obsession — obscure rocker Tucker Crowe, who hasn't released any new music or performed live for years. Rose is quite frankly, sick of hearing about Tucker Crowe and she's just about had it with Duncan.

When an acoustic demo of Tucker's hit record from 25 years ago surfaces, Duncan is elated and posts a glowing review on his Tucker Crowe fan site. Annie listens to it and is completely underwhelmed. In turn, she writes a scathing review of the album, which prompts the unpretentious Tucker to write her an email, telling her he agrees with her assessment. They begin corresponding and tell each other about their lives. Tucker devotes his life to raising his young son, but is planning a trip to England and wants to meet Annie, who is astounded by this turn of events.

  • 4 stars "I liked it. Ethan Hawke is very good as the charismatic 50 year old who never grew up. Rose Byrne is excellent as the long-suffering girlfriend of Duncan who finds some excitement elsewhere. Romantic comedy isn't really my thing but this one is entertaining, interesting, and touching. 80/100 …...guru bob"
  • 4 stars "Nick Hornby does it again with a great script, direction, and acting. Ethan Hawke, Rose Byrne and Chris O'Dowd turned in wonderful performances, especially O'Dowd who continues to eat up the screen with his exceptionally humorous and yet understated performance. The music is just perfect for the film. Go see this one. You will laugh and maybe cry just a little."
