‘Begin Again’ DVD Review

13 November 2014 4:42 AM, PST | Blogomatic3000 | See recent Blogomatic3000 news »

Stars: Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Adam Levine, James Corden, Hailee Steinfeld, Mos Def, Catherine Keener, Mary Catherine Garrison, Marco Assante | Written and Directed by John Carney

When I started to watch Begin Again my initial thoughts were of déjà vu. Seemingly following the same style of plot similar to Not Another Happy Ending, I expected Mark Ruffalo’s music producer to fall in love with Keira Knightley’s aspiring musician.  Happily though I found that assumptions can often be wrong.

When Dan (Mark Ruffalo) loses his position at the record label he helped form it looks like he’s finally lost everything.  Spending the day getting drunk, he ends up at a small bar where he discovers Gretta (Keira Knighley) performing one of her songs at an open-mic night.  Captivated by her talent he offers to help her become a star, triggering a change not only in her life but his too. »
