German Age Rating

Based on Nick Hornby’s bestseller Juliet, Naked is a moving, funny account of love, loneliness, and life’s unexpected turns… Annie is stuck in a long-term relationship with Duncan—an obsessive fan of obscure rocker Tucker Crowe. Duncan is far more devoted to his music idol than to Annie. When the acoustic demo of Tucker’s hit record from 25 years ago surfaces, it leads to a life-changing encounter between Annie and the elusive rocker himself.
