Edit Details Official Sites: Edit Did You Know? Goofs When recording the song on the roof Miriam is apparently recording or taking photographs of the session as you can see her walking around the band. About 40 seconds into the song she just appears behind the band only to disappear a few seconds later.
Don't you know anything about your father? And isn't that everyone? Begin Again is a not-entirely-successful movie about not selling out; it's a theme that must concern Carney deeply.

Can a meaningful glance mean as much as a kiss? In this film, it can, and that's enough.
The film isn't perfect and it certainly isn't wrapped up in a tight little bow, but all in all, it's a captivating film. Everyone in this movie seems to be a little bit in love, and never more so than when they're recording on a rooftop in the city, going gorgeously against the grain of how things are supposedly supposed to be done. Decidedly different from super-budget, superhero fare, this one is sometimes sappy but mostly engaging and definitely driven by music.
Somehow, none of it quite gels. A refreshing and superbly-edited dramatic comedy from the director of Once, who depicts once again a warm, platonic relationship born from the mutual love shared by two people for music, and oh boy, aren't the songs in this film just so lovely and beautiful!
In some ways, Carney just remakes his wonderful "Once" under US conditions here. It's not entirely the same story but neither particularly original. It works thanks to some of the actors, but Knightley still feels like an odd choice and Levine is not much of an actor.
What saves the films are little, original scenes, like the performances of mostly mediocre songs at unusual places or the "try not to dance" party game. A charming movie, with a few slow parts and odd priorities, but overall still enjoyable. Got to admit, I wasn't looking forward to this one. I got it as a buy two, get one free, this being the one free because there was literally nothing else I might watch that I didn't already have. I then stuck it in a drawer for about 6 months.
Begin Again () - Rotten Tomatoes
Found it again tonight and didn't have much else to watch so decided it was time. What a pleasant surprise! I actually quite enjoyed it. Honestly, part of the reason I put off watching for so long. Writing songs makes her feel better and one night she is "discovered" by a troubled music executive. It's a nice movie with lots of singing from Keira surprisingly her voice and the songs are really good.
As well as her story, it follows the executive and his ex and teenage daughter and the difficult relationship they have. I liked the ending.

Hitfix - Drew McWeeny May 31, John Carney, who wrote and directed "Once," has made another great film that focuses on songwriters and the way their lives influence their work. Empire - Ian Freer Jun 23, Begin Again is a joyous movie about the good things in life: And Knightley and Ruffalo make for one of the most unusual engaging couples of the year. The music is hit-and-miss, and the movie sinks into as many cliches as it avoids.
But the characters are appealing, and the storytelling is just unconventional enough to keep an audience guessing. Entertainment Weekly - Keith Staskiewicz Jun 26, But Begin Again has been burnished to a shiny dullness. Begin Again now holds a top spot among my favorite movies. The story evolves into a lovely, graceful celebration about the love between friends. Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley excel in creating and shaping characters that you hope to meet again. James Corden is also a delight!
