"‘Singles’ came out when I was at a very impressionable age. It felt true to the era, and it made me excited for my adult life. The music, fashion and the energy of Seattle in the ’90s were all in accord, and the film channels the overall ethos well. The overarching sentiment that has stuck with me is the romance of chance encounters and missed connections that feels too long ago. The film reminds me of my technology-less formative years, for which I’ll always be grateful. Grunge had arrived and it was cool — now it is nostalgia-inducing. I wouldn’t even say I loved the songs individually ... but they worked together perfectly for the film.” (via Star Tribune: https://goo.gl/TV1dFH)
In Seattle during the era of grunge music, the lives and relationships of a group of young people, all living in the same apartment building, go through a period of flux. Among them are waitress and aspiring architect Janet (Bridget Fonda), who finds herself obsessed with bad boy musician Cliff (Matt Dillon) ; Linda (Kyra Sedgwick), an emotionally fragile environmentalist on the look-out for love; and Steve (Campbell Scott), a quintessential nice guy who studies traffic patterns.
