A comedy about fear of commitment, hating your job, falling in love and other pop favourites! Welcome to Episode 36 of “Reel Chat” – a podcast that guarantees week in, week out – the “Reel world as we know it.”
On this episode of our “Vintage Vault” retrospective series, host Adam Stolfo is joined by co-host Brose Avard and guests Andrew McCaskill and Stuart Wilson to discuss 2000’s romantic comedy – “High Fidelity” – based on the best-selling British novel of the same name by Nick Hornby.
This popular John Cusack vehicle follows Rob, a record store owner and compulsive list maker, who recounts his top five breakups, including the one currently in progress.
Hear the “Reel Chat” guys get stuck into the film’s cast, it’s filmmakers, the many featured songs (70 of them in fact), the interesting decision to “break the fourth wall” Ferris Bueller style, it’s DVD and Blu-ray releases, deleted scenes, it’s high critical acclaim, as well as how many movies John and Joan Cusack have actually worked on together.
