We follow the adventures of the staff of Empire Records for a whole day. All young kids with a 30 some-year-old boss. The record store is going to close down, as it is more expensive to keep it open, not to mention that one of the staff members had gambled away most of their savings the night before... In order to keep the shop open, they throw a big fundraiser concert at the end of the day, to which surprisingly a lot of people show up - as this place is a safe haven for a lot of people, not just its employees - and they do manage to save the store.
This is such a great movie, and I think it is very underrated, despite the all star cast that these actors turned out to be! Simple, but touching stories, that are bound to get to any youngster who is questioning what they should be doing in life - or whether or not what they doing is the right thing. It could be, maybe it isn't, but the key is surrounding yourself with the right people and then everything will be alright! Do watch this movie!
Until the next item on my list!
