Sure, the look is somewhat dated and one has to wonder how people ever thought such clothes looked good on them.The soundtrack, on the other hand, is still one of the finest ever, with timeless bands like Pearl Jam, Alice in chains and Soundgarden appearing in guest roles in this film that grasps the feeling of that time so perfectly while saying a lot of timeless truths about the relationships between men and women.
The central couple is Steve Dunne (Campbell Scott) and Linda Powell (Kyra Sedgwick), a pair who meet at an Alice In Chains concert and eventually fall in love.
Singles follows the tumultuous relationship between Steve and Linda and their friendship with Janet Livermore (Bridget Fonda), who is trying to win the affection of grunge-rocker Cliff Poncier (Matt Dillon).
