Ever since I saw the commercial for the Hulu Original High Fidelity, I knew I had to see it. I saw that it was starring Zoe Kravitz and I’m a biased huge fan of her’s… Mainly because of her band Lolawolf and her fashion aesthetic as well.
High Fidelity is based on the movie High Fidelity that came out in 2000. The original starred John Cusack, Jack Black, Steve Pink, Iben Hjejle, and many others (along with Lisa Bonet, who is the mother of Zoe Kravitz the main character of the Hulu series).
I binge watched the series all day yesterday since there are only 10 episodes in the first season and I figured I would share with you guys why you should watch High Fidelity. So check it out!
