Begin Again Movie Inspired Style



"Begin Again" premiered on Fox Movies on Saturday and what a fabulous movie it was. It didn't need explosives and special effects to make it a gem of a movie. The characters are strong enough to pull you into the plot and the scenes unfolded beautifully with New York city in the background.
The movie was directed by John Carney who also directed another indie movie, "Once".

I'm not so much into movie musicals (I cringed at Mama Mia despite the stunning Greek scenery) but the songs here are lovely and blended in beautifully with the movie. I would not hesitate to get the Soundtrack. If you enjoyed watching "Once", you should watch "Begin Again". It's not perfect eg Dan's sulky teenage daughter becoming almost cheerful over one meeting with Gretta but it's a feel-good movie so don't expect the reality bites stuff. Plus I liked Keira Knightley's little girl singing voice despite her almost edgy outlook.


Begin Again: Music From & Inspired By The Original Motion Picture

I'm hardly a qualified movie critic so the info below were extracted from IMDb's website:


Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam 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 (Mark 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.

Interesting Trivia:

Keira Knightley had to learn play the guitar for the role and her husband, musician James Righton, offered his help. However, according to Knightley herself, his lessons were atrocious for their relationship, and almost led to a "divorce and murder".

Scarlett Johansson was cast in the lead role but dropped out.

The red electric guitar Adam plays at the end of the movie is his actual guitar he plays at concerts.


The whole time while watching the movie, I couldn't help but notice Keira Knightley's wardrobe. It was so Coco Chanel inspired - modern and elegant. So in this post, I've compiled a few of her looks and sourced for pieces to help you get her style.


Keira Knightley looks a little skinny here but focus on her outfits, ok?
