We only have a few more days to wait for the release of Begin Again, and we are very excited here at Janes!

Begin Again Trailer

Originally named ‘Can A Song Save Your Life?’ Begin Again is a musical romantic comedy drama…it basically has a little bit of everything!

The plot follows Greta (Keira Knightley) a young singer/songwriter at a loss when her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) dumps her upon landing a deal with a major record label. But all things start to look up when Dan (Mark Ruffalo) a down and out record label executive, sees her play in a bar and becomes utterly captivated by her raw talent. Following this, Greta and Dan make a deal to work together and make an album, recording each track in different area of New York, from an alleyway in Chinatown to a rowing boat in Central Park.


The film, written and directed by John Carney, who is best known for his award-winning 2007 Irish musical film Once, promises to be a hit at the box office. The all-star cast and a chance to witness Adam Levine in his acting debut will no doubt draw in the crowds. The only downfall could be whether or not the audience take to Knightley’s singing voice, but from the small snippet we can hear in the trailer, it would be fair to say she’s got Janes seal of approval!

We have every faith that Carney has created another fantastic feel-good film, and who knows, if the film reaps similar success to Once he might have another chance at winning the Academy Award for Best Original Song for ‘Lost Stars’ at the Oscars in 2015.
