Stephen Frears
High Fidelity
2000

Stephen Frears' charming retelling of Nick Hornby's novel features John Cusack as self-absorbed audiophile and indie record store owner Rob Gordon. Inspired by the departure of his girlfriend Laura (Iben Hjejle), Rob lists for us his top five breakups of all time. The likable romantic narrative is a vehicle for brilliant cameos, great compilation tapes (and soundtrack), the aforementioned top-five lists, and glorious shtick from Joan Cusack, Tim Robbins, Jack Black, and Todd Louiso.
