High Fidelity (USA, 2000)
directed by Stephen Frears
Based on the cult novel of the same name by Nick Hornby (print the 25 first pages of the novel and listen to him, checking out our TP webpage in Literature).
The Script (50 pages) from Screenplays for You
Rob (Cusack) is going through a 'mid-life' crisis. He's a thirty-something record-store owner who must face the undeniable facts - he's growing up. In a hilarious homage to the music scene, Rob and the wacky, offbeat clerks that inhabit his store expound on the intricacies of life and song all the while trying to succeed in their adult relationships. Are they listening to pop music because they are miserable? Or are they miserable because they listen to pop music? This romantic comedy provides a touching and whimsical glimpse into the male view of the affairs of the heart.

Laura: I'm too tired not to be with you.
Rob: What, so if you had a bit more energy we'd stay split up, but things being as they are, with you being wiped out and all, you want to get back together? Is that it?
