About Begin Again
The director of sweet musical romance Once must be hoping for repeat success with this similarly-themed whimsical movie that has a much bigger budget and bonafide Hollywood stars. Greta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who move to New York when he lands a deal with a major record label. But the glitz and glamour of fame leads Dave astray and soon Greta is left reeling and heartbroken by the changes in his behaviour. She is encouraged to perform at an open mic night by a friend, where she attracts the attention of washed-up record label executive Dan (Mark Ruffalo). He decides to help her record an album, and she helps him reconnect with music.
