Record store manager and list-compiler-extrordinaire Rob Gordon (Cusack)'s girlfriend has left him, sending him on a mission to find out what went wrong, and what were his all time, top five, most painful breakups ever.
Away from the love stuff, High Fidelity is probably the best film about the joys of retail since Clerks; very good on the muso conversations born out of boredom - musically the film neatly finds the American equivalents of Hornby's UK musical lexicon - and the threeway dissing and compiling of tastes sparkles.
