Once director John Carney is back with another music based movie called Begin Again. I loved the film Once, and I was hoping that we'd get another movie from the filmmaker. The movie stars Mark Ruffalo as an ex-record label executive who comes in contact with a broken hearted Keira Knightley as she is performing one of her songs at a bar in New York City. From there they form an unexpected relationship. It looks like another great film from Carney. The movie also stars Adam Levine, Hailee Steinfeld, Catherine Keener, Mos Def, and CeeLo Green. Here's the synopsis:
Written and directed by John Carney, Begin Again is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who come to New York when he lands a deal with a major label. His new-found fame soon tempts Dave to stray, leaving a reeling, lovelorn Gretta on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performance in the East Village and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges a mutually transformative collaboration set to a summer in New York City soundtrack.
The movie comes out on July 4th.
