You're only as strong as your next move.


Begin Again
A young musician and her long-time boyfriend are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who move to New York when he lands a deal with a major label. With fame comes a wandering eye, and the gutted woman is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when 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.

Tomatometer quote iconWriter-director John Carney's return to musical drama isn't quite as potent as it was with Once, but thanks to charming work from its well-matched leads, Begin Again is difficult to resist.
