nick hornby and marriage


so my assignment this weekend is to write a paper on marriage through the image of a piece of art. i have choosen the film "high fidelity". it is interesting, because i have always felt that this movie was a picture of marraige even though the characters are not married. there is something so important about relationships being said in this film. fantasy is only good in your head because you don't have to deal with the reality of the relationship. also that committment is something you can't do while always searching for something better, you have to be with someone in the grit and grime of it to grow with them. it's funny because every nick hornby story i have read deal with marriage and relationships. fever pitch(the british one not the gawd awful american version),is a great example of this...besides it has colin firth in it too...yummy!
