Charming, sweet and smart, this romantic comedy based on a Nick Hornby novel (About A Boy, High Fidelity) is a comic account of life’s second chances. Rose Byrne stars as Annie, a middle-aged woman who is in an unsatisfying long-term relationship. Her partner Duncan (Chris O’Dowd) is a Film and TV studies professor who spends his free hours obsessing about an obscure American singer-songwriter, Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke), who disappeared from the music scene 25 years ago. The unexpected arrival in the mail of an acoustic demo of Tucker’s last album (with songs by Robyn Hitchcock, Ryan Adams, and Conor Oberst) starts an unanticipated series of events leading to these two meeting his idol.
