Begin Again

The latest film from writer-director John Carney (Once '06), Begin Again is a soul-stirring romantic comedy-drama about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. 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, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.

Starring: Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, and Catherine Keener

Running time: 1 hr 41 mins

Tickets are $8.75. Carmike Cinemas accepts cash, credit and debit cards.

Show time is 7:00 PM. Afterwards, let's head over to Sake Bomb for food and discussion , just across the street at 4215 University Dr.

    I'm thrilled everyone liked it! I want to be in a band, performing on the streets now. That looked like a blast! :-)

    BTW. You can (if you are a luddite, as I usually am) buy the physical CD for $12 on Amazon. Kind of interesting where things have gone with music marketing. Apparently, the publishing revolution has not been what some of us hoped for - but I guess that's the way it often goes with revolutions.

    Since tomorrow night doesn't work for me, I went to see this last weekend. Great movie! Dying to hear what y'all think about it. :-)

    The outdoor recording concept made me think of the endless hours I've spent on YouTube watching La Blogotheque Take Away Shows. Here are a few links to that, lots of great music/bands performing in Europe and recently Brazil...tons of good stuff to search through and listen! http://en.blogotheque.net/homepage/, http://en.blogotheque.net/,

    Good movie and a real crowd pleaser, glad everyone enjoyed it. Dinner afterwards was enjoyable as well, good food and service at Sake Bomb.

    Incredibly good, including the plot, the direction, the acting, and the songs. Uplifting and entertaining! It has a life of its own that no plot summary or review from me can begin to approach. I just bought the soundtrack on iTunes - something I (almost) never do. Trust me, just go out and see it.

    Sorry I missed the movie. I deeply cut my finger and was receiving medical treatment.

    Happy Birthday Carl! Movie sounds like it may be good. I may end up being able to go but for now it is a maybe.

    Looks like another great find by Shawna. I will just have to pacify my bike Wednesday and Friday.

    Thank you, Miri. I was at Sake Bomb a few weeks ago to celebrate a birthday for a friend. Great food, service perhaps a bit sluggish. That was my first encounter with Sake Bomb, so I'm not very well equipped to lobby on their behalf ;-)

    Did someone say East Village? In a former life I installed sound systems in the East Village. For the nostalgia value alone, it's a must see. And, although I've stopped counting them, it's my birthday - maybe I can finagle a free dessert from Sake Bomb ;-)
