This is a well-done movie about an almost-famous rock  band touring in the seventies as seen through the eyes  of an almost-employed young journalist who's been hired  to follow them.  Most of the characters are expectable if not exactly pre-  dictable.

Billy Crudup, Frances McDormand, Philip Seymour Hoffman all give outstanding inimitable portrayals, but newcomers like Patrick Fugit are a joy to watch and to grow to love, then admire as actors. This …
