Nick & Norah Movie

There's a movie being released this fall based on Rachel Cohn and David Levithan's book Nick and Norah's Infinite Playlist.

Here's the info on the book from the Random House website:

NOW A MAJOR motion picture starring Michael Cera (Juno and Superbad) and Kat Dennings (The 40 Year-Old Virgin)! Nick and Norah’s Infinite Playlist is a comedy about two teens thrust together for one hilarious, sleepless night of adventure in a world of mix tapes, late-night living, and, live, loud music. Nick frequents New York’s indie rock scene nursing a broken heart and Norah is questioning all of her assumptions about the world. Though they have nothing in common except for their taste in music, their chance encounter leads to an all-night quest to find a legendary band’s secret show and ends up becoming the first date that could change both their lives.

I liked the book. What did you think? Cohn and Levithan alternated writing chapters from Norah and Nick's different points of view.

I think the movie looks good too, even though I don't think it has that much in common with the book, but that happens a lot. Guess we'll find out October 3!

Will you go see it?
