Storyline Heading
Gretta and her long-time boyfriend Dave 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, 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.

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama Musical - Like writer/director John Carney's previous film Once, this a music-driven romantic dramedy. Fans of stars Keira Knightley (who shows off her singing talents) and Mark Ruffalo will definitely enjoy, as will fans of Adam Levine in his film debut. Other familiar faces such as Catherine Keener and CeeLo Green only show up fairly briefly. The R rating is for language, and parents not overly sensitive to profanity may find the film passable for older teens.

Critic's Review Heading

Roger Ebert Full Review
Good Ultimately, any movie that is driven by music should leave you humming as you leave the theater. Whether it's the tunes or Ruffalo that causes you to feel that way, it is all good enough.

USA Today Full Review
Good Ruffalo and Knightley make an engaging pair of colleagues and their musical adventure together results in an enchanting, gently funny and occasionally poignant story.

Entertainment Weekly Full Review
Above Average It's true that the sweet core at the center never fully melts into treacly goop, and Ruffalo and Knightley are touchingly low-key.

NY Post Full Review
Average Musical drama 'Begin Again' fails to hit the right notes.

OPINION GRAPH

OPINION OVERVIEW
The following is the original "What's Worth Watching" write-up for this movie.

Moviegoer Opinions:

Based on a theater exit polling of 37 moviegoers:
TWENTYSOMETHINGS: The lone female loved "Begin Again."
ADULTS: The male and female reviews are very good. About half loved "Begin Again." Most of the remaining half rated it "above average," which indicates a movie they enjoyed very much. About 18% of the males and 5% of the females rated it a "good/average" movie. Equally important is that no one disliked "Begin Again," so your probability of enjoying it, at least to some degree, is very high.
