Starring Keira Knightley, Adam Levine, Mark Ruffalo and Hailee Steinfeld, Begin Again is set to hit select theaters June 27 and everywhere July 2.
The latest film from writer-director John Carney (Once), Begin Again is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent.
From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.
Levine’s record label, 222 Records, will distribute the film’s soundtrack, which features songs co-written by Gregg Alexander, Danielle Brisebois, and Glen Hansard. The songs are performed by the cast, including Levine, Knightley, Steinfeld and Cee Lo Green.
