A heartbroken ex-girlfriend of a rock and roll star finds love again in a down-on-his-luck record producer she met at a bar.
The first trailer for romantic drama comedy "Begin Again" formerly titled "Can a Song Save Your Life?" has been made available for viewing pleasure. Keira Knightley and Adam Levine play a couple and songwriting partners until he dumps her for fame and fortune, leaving her all alone in New York, where they just moved in.
Her world takes a turn for the better when a record producer (Mark Ruffalo) who just got fired from his job stumbles upon her singing during an open mic night at a bar. He is immediately captivated by her raw talent and inspiring authenticity, and convinces her to work with him. With not enough money in their pockets, they resort to recording their music on the street.
Supported by Hailee Steinfeld and Cee-Lo Green, "Begin Again" is directed and written by John Carney, the mastermind behind "Once", the musical film which got a Grammy nomination and won an Academy Award for Best Original Song in 2007. Glen Hansard who starred in "Once" helps with the soundtrack of "Begin Again".
