This Nick Hornby adaptation stars Rose Byrne as Annie who lives in a small British seaside town with her longtime boyfriend Duncan (Chris O’Dowd). Duncan is more than a bit uncomfortably into an indie rock star from the 90s named Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke) who mysteriously disappeared after putting out just one album. Which is to say, he has a shrine room to the faded rocker in their house and he runs a website for fans and theories as to his whereabouts. When Annie rebelliously posts a negative review of a demo version of the record which has surfaced, she is surprised to be contacted by the erstwhile rocker and the two spark up a friendship online, and eventually in person. Complications ensue.

Rob and Russ Summers join Chris for this review and it might surprise you how strongly they all feel about this film. Listen here to find out how.

Born in the wilds of northern Virginia, in 1992 Chris managed to put all of his survival skills to use and barely escaped with his life to Austin Texas, where ever since he’s dabbled in everything from plumber’s assistant to sandwich maker, from band to bar management. An opportunity to see theatrical release films for free, by becoming a critic on a local public access show called “The Reel Deal”, turned into a full time job when Chris and his friends decided to take it to the internet. They built the site Spill.com, adding multiple podcasts and animated features, to no small amount of success. During this time, a fortuitous friendship sprung up between Chris and young Brian Salisbury, who was also a local film critic, and they merged their forces of will, and their laundry list of ideas for shows, to eventually build this paradise you see before you.
