Juliet, Naked is the story of Annie (the long-suffering girlfriend of Duncan) and her unlikely transatlantic romance with once revered, now faded, singer-songwriter, Tucker Crowe, who also happens to be the subject of Duncan's musical obsession.
Annie (Rose Byrne) is stuck in a long-term relationship with Duncan (Chris O'Dowd) - an obsessive fan of obscure rocker Tucker Crowe (Ethan Hawke). When the acoustic demo of Tucker's hit record from 25 years ago surfaces, its release leads to a life-changing encounter with the elusive rocker himself. Based on the novel by Nick Hornby, JULIET, NAKED is a comic account of life's second chances.
According to an interview with Yahoo program Build, during filming, Rose Byrne cut one of her index fingers clean off with a blender. It had to be surgically reattached. See more »
While Duncan is playing Tucker Crowe's album for Carley and she's looking around the room, there's a poster on the wall for The Pit Club with Crowe's last show in 1993, but it lists Anberlin as headliner of the next show; however, Anberlin wasn't formed until 2002. Also listed on the poster are Drowning Pool (formed 1996), White Rabbits (members met in 2004), Mudvane (formed 1996) and Sick Puppies (formed 1997). See more »
Hello! Welcome to 'Can You Hear Me?', your source for all things Tucker Crowe. If you're here, you're probably already a fan of Tucker's music. But if you're merely 'Crowe-curious', or you clicked on the link by accident, allow me to introduce you to one of the most seminal, and yet unsung, figures of alternative rock.

Haven't laughed out loud so much in a theater in a long time. Simply charming smart and delightful. A film about feeling and being stuck, a very human condition, and attempts (successful and not so successful) to deal with it. Just wonderful acting from all the leads, Ethan Hawke and Rose Byrne in particular. A kid, Azhy Robertson, charming and funny without being too precious. Wonderful believable chemistry, an intelligent and witty "romcom", but devoid of the unrealistic mush and manipulative plot tricks typical of the genre. Finally a movie as good as the Nick Hornby its based on. Oh, and a hopeful ending without saccharine, something much needed. Go see it.
