Chicago Humanities Festival is proud to host the first ever public screening of Hulu’s new adaptation of High Fidelity. This new take reimagines the bestselling Nick Hornby novel and Stephen Frears film starring John Cusack (famously set in Chicago) into a television show centered on a female record store owner, played by series star Zoë Kravitz, in the rapidly gentrified neighborhood of Crown Heights, Brooklyn. In harmony with the remake genre, the series allows for an inclusive representation of voice and experience, while remaining a story of unforgettable heartbreaks set to a timeless playlist.
