Description

Singles is a Gen-X cult classic starring Bridget Fonda, Campbell Scott, Kyra Sedgwick, and Matt Dillon.

"Cameron Crowe’s Singles: released in 1992... unknowingly captured an era’s zeitgeist: it was conceived before the Seattle hype took over modern rock radio, and even Eddie Vedder and Jeff Ament’s cameos were made when Pearl Jam was still called Mookie Blaylock. The film followed a group of single people in Seattle set against the burgeoning grunge movement.

The flannel, the goatees, the espresso beans, Screaming Trees — none of these grunge staples had yet to filter up into Perry Ellis ads and The Real World. When they’re removed, you have a universal movie about the desperation, struggles, and compromises surrounding adult romance. Re-watching Singles now, it’s almost shocking that my teenage self revered a movie with such adult themes, when now I relate so closely to Linda’s (Kyra Sedgwick) fears of intimacy, Janet’s (Bridget Fonda) “God Bless You” dating requirement, and Debbie’s (Whatshername) “Expect the Best” video." ~Ryan Creed @ Flavorwire
