Adapted from the book by Nick Hornby (About A Boy), High Fidelity is a Chicago-set film about a 30-something record shop owner in a mid-life crisis.
When record store owner Rob Gordon gets dumped by his girlfriend because he hasn’t changed since they met, he revisits his top five breakups of all time in an attempt to figure out what went wrong. High Fidelity features music by The Kinks, The Velvet Underground, Bob Dylan, Elvis Costello, Stereolab and Stevie Wonder.
