You’ve read the book, now see the film! Or maybe you’ve seen the film… in which case, read the book!
Juliet, Naked, available from Sunday 7 July in Sky Cinema on demand. Cert 15. Also available in HD
Author Nick Hornby certainly knows how to write ’em – he’s penned High Fidelity, Fever Pitch and About A Boy, all of which have been adapted into films that became blockbuster hits. And Juliet, Naked is another feather in his cinematic cap, as Annie (Rose Byrne, Instant Family) and Duncan (Chris O’Dowd, Bridesmaids) are brought vividly to life on the big screen.
If you’re not familiar with the story, college teacher Duncan is obsessed with rock star Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke, First Reformed). He has an entire room decked out in Crowe memorabilia and also runs a website dedicated to him. His long-suffering girlfriend Annie feels their relationship is heading nowhere, with Duncan seemingly more enamoured with a man he doesn’t even know than with her. Crowe, meanwhile, hasn’t been on the scene in years, but when a 25-year-old demo of his surfaces, Annie decides to give it a listen. What follows is a chance encounter that could lead to some beautiful music – or more than a few achy breaky hearts.
