A comedy about fear of commitment, hating your job, falling in love and other pop favourites. Directed by Stephen Frears and starring starring John Cusack (who co-wrote the screenplay), Jack Black and Catherine Zeta Jones, with a cameo from Bruce Springsteen.
According to Nick, ‘High Fidelity is incredibly faithful to the book despite the fact it’s been reset in Chicago … The only thing that’s changed is the music’.
“I never expected it to be so faithful … At times it appears to be a film in which John Cusack reads my book.”
The film was nominated for a slew of awards, including the BAFTA for best adapted screenplay and was produced by Working Title, New Crime, Dogstar, Touchstone.
