Movies have always been a great escape for audiences and that is normally always the case with Cameron Crowe's films. The beauty of a drama like Almost Famous is that it allows audiences to imagine what it would have been like to have been a rock star in the '70s. The road, the friendships and the groupies were all captured to the letter in the film, which of course had an equally amazing soundtrack.
About midway into the film, the main cast is driving down a dirt road with Elton John's "Tiny Dancer" playing in the background. Eventually, the ensemble slowly starts to sing along, and the result is a truly satisfying moment amid the chaos we've seen and know is still to come.
The part that brings it all together, though, is when Patrick Fugit's shy character William Miller turns to Kate Hudson's wild child Penny Lane and says, "I have to go home" -- to which she replies, "You are home."
For that brief moment, we were as well.
