Annie is caught up in a dreary relationship with Duncan—an obsessive fan of mythic rock star Tucker Crowe who disappeared years ago. In fact, it seems as though Duncan is far more devoted to his music idol than to Annie. What starts out as a mere talkback, spirals into a trans-Atlantic relationship between Annie and the object of her boyfriend’s adoration. American director Jesse Peretz’s (Our Idiot Brother) adaptation of Nick Hornby’s bestseller features two outstanding actors in the lead roles: Ethan Hawke and Rose Byrne. Peretz wisely integrates elements of drama and humor in a delightful, touching, and insightful film about loneliness and love.
