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." – David Denby, New Yorker, Jul 14, 2014

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. – Bruce Ingram, Chicago Sun-Times, Jul 7, 2014

Fresh: Its soft-rock bonhomie [prevails] over a story that often registers as trite or naive. – J. R. Jones, Chicago Reader, Jul 7, 2014

Rotten: Begin Again is a not-entirely-successful movie about not selling out; it's a theme that must concern Carney deeply. – Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail, Jul 11, 2014
