Originally dubbed Can a Song Save Your Life?, Begin Again sees an all star cast unite for one of these inspirational musical drama things.
Written and directed by Irish filmmaker John Carney (Once), Begin Again follows the relationship between a washed up music executive (Mark Ruffalo) and an up and coming folk singer (Kiera Knightley).
Begin Again looks like fluffy, inoffensive stuff (although Keira Knightley’s soft folk tracks sound pretty torturous – we need more BPM and synthesiser) – with a few decent performances to boot. Ruffalo always manages to charm and this one has a nice supporting cast including Adam Levine, James Corden, Hailee Steinfeld, Catherine Keener and Cee Lo Green.We’re particularly excited to see Levine act again after he impressed in American Horror Story: Asylum.
Begin Again hits UK cinemas on July 11. It arrives one week earlier in the USA.
