Previously titled Can a Song Save Your Life?, Begin Again has now released its first trailer, so we can get a feel for this music infused upcoming movie, which stars Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Adam Levine, Hailee Steinfeld, Catherine Keener, CeeLo Green and James Corden.
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 is due out this summer. [Read more…]
