Crowe's Nest: Film Festival becomes Almost Famous for its 25th anniversary

Noe Gold, Hollywood Reporter, The, 12 September 2000

Director Cameron Crowe presented his poetically autobiographical Almost Famous to the Toronto International Film Festival at a world premiere gala screening in the Roy Thomson Hall September 8. It is the story of how Crowe began his career as a rock writer at the tender age of 16. The movie is highly accurate in the cultural details, while the names of most of the film's characters have been changed to protect the innocent, or the guilty, which in the film's early '70s universe was often a relative question.
