Keira Knightley - “Tell Me If You Wanna Go Home” | Yes Keira sings. well at least for the film Begin Again, she does. Begin Again is the new film by director John Carney, who brought us Once. In the movie Keira plays a ex-girlfriend of a rockstar, played by Adam Levine. After being stuck in NYC, she meets a washed-out music producer, played by Mark Ruffalo. Throw them all into the magical hipster side of NYC and add some indie musicians and you get a Carney-ian music opera. Keira’s singing is cute, but not glorious or memorable. But the relationships and the characters are. Its less of a musical than Once is, it feels more like a magical NYC movie involving musicians. Carney captures the fairytale of musicians and again teases us with a relationship of love/friendship/something greater??
Ironically, i saw Once against Transformer 1. And here John Carney is cursed to battle the box office with another Transformer film. I advise everyone to see either this little indie feel-good music movie of the summer or at least if you have to see a scifi-blockbuster film, go see Snowpiercer, latest film by Bong Joon-ho, of The Host and Mother fame. Anything is better than Transformer 4.
