About the Movie
The latest film from writer-director John Carney (Academy Award®-Winner ONCE), BEGIN AGAIN is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Academy Award®-Nominee Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left alone. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Academy Award®-Nominee Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label executive, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Another sappy but engaging musical fable from the Irish writer and director John Carney, who made "Once."
Fresh: You can't really blame writer-director John Carney for trying, but despite a few very nice moments, this bigger, slicker follow-up mostly argues that Once should have been enough.
Fresh: Its soft-rock bonhomie [prevails] over a story that often registers as trite or naive.
Rotten: Begin Again is a not-entirely-successful movie about not selling out; it's a theme that must concern Carney deeply.
Loved this movie and loved the characters and the music. Bought the soundtrack as soon as I got home and cant wait to own the movie. Felt like I was in the movie and wanted more. Great job!
