Scenes of New York City, British accents, music! I am sold. I saw the movie Begin Again this weekend and I really liked it! It stars Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Adam Levine – I mean seriously, can we just stop now. I love all of them. And they did not disappoint. Knightley plays a singer-songwriter who is discovered by a struggling record label executive (Ruffalo) and collaborates with him to produce an album recorded in public locations all over New York City.
If you know me at all, you know I love musicals. Plus if I love a movie or a song I will watch/listen to it over and over and over (repeat) again. And this has become my latest obsession. It was written and directed by Jim Carney, from the successful movie of Once. Which was also a fantastic movie. But I actually like this one better.
Keira, (yes, we are on a first name basis) had never sung professionally before and she took lessons with a voice coach and learned how to play the guitar. Impressive! The movie was sweet, poignant, fun and a new favorite for me. Just go watch it already.
