I am genuinely surprised by how good this looks.
As a gentlemen in his mid 30’s, who was obsessed with music, the original High Fidelity film was a cultural touchstone for me. A movie (and book) which I felt spoke to me directly. Of course, with age, I realized how much of an asshole/man-child Rob was, but that’s a talking point for a different day.
When I first heard this remake was in the works, I was skeptical. Zoe Kravitz is an enjoyable actress, but I didn’t know what this new version would bring. Instead, after watching this trailer, I realize how much of a twist the gender bend really is and will be. And instead, I’m left asking: they really meant for this to live on Disney+!?!
