Love story rocks with music

Posted on: December 8, 2009

Nick’s girlfriend just dumped him.  So is he going to mope? Nope.  His friends will see to that.  Besides, their favorite rock group is staging a secret show in Manhattan.  Half the fun is looking for it.  Then a pretty girl at a club asks Nick to be her boyfriend for five minutes.

 The Murphy Library is showing “Nick & Norah’s Infinite Playlist” Thursday at 6 p.m.  It is rated PG-13.  Running time is 90 minutes. 
 
Nick O’Leary (Michael Cera of “Juno” and “Arrested Development”) is a graduating senior at his New Jersey high school.  And he seems to have a strong sense of himself.  After all, he’s the only straight guy in a gay rock band.
 
When Nora (Kat Dennings ) asks Nick to be her five-minute boyfriend, it’s to show up a catty girl she knows.  What she doesn’t know is that Tris is Nick’s ex-girlfriend.  He is not upset at the revelation.
 
In fact, Nick and Norah click.  They roam the streets of Manhattan through the night, following rumors of the hidden band with the mighty moniker: Where’s Fluffy.  And they spend the hours talking.
 
That is, when they’re not listening to the songs of bands named Ratatat, Takka Takka, and Shout Out Louds.  Feel like a stranger in a strange land?  Don’t give up.  Sooner or later Billy Joel will sing “Just the way you are.”
 
Nick and Norah make interesting music together, especially when the Big Apple sits smiling in the background.
