Begin Again

Went to see the indie music movie Begin Again, the follow-up to the writer/director’s previous indie music movie Once (winner of best song for Falling Slowly). It has an impressive cast including Keira Knightly (transcendent – it was nice to see her shine again), Marc Ruffalo (boozy), Hailee Steinfeld, Katherine Keener, Cee Lo Green, and Adam Levine (yes, from Maroon 5). It’s a simple story about a singer/songwriter (Knightly) and an A&R record manager (Rufallo) who try to develop a record… that’s about it. Some problems ensue, romantic entanglements, and a lot of songs are sang… it’s basically a charming indie pop fairy tale. Well acted with good songs.
