Begin Again is a drama film with a little bit of comedy and music on the side that is written and directed by Irish TV/Movie writer and director John Canney. He is the same person who wrote and directed the award-winning indie film Once, in 2007. Begin Again was released on June 27, 2014 and has a running time of 104 minutes.
Gretta accompanies Dave Kolh, her boyfriend, to New York City where he is to begin recording his new album under a famous record company. After weeks in the Big City, Dave now caught up with his new-found fame and stardom, announces to Gretta that he has a new person of interest and they sadly split up. While Gretta was singing in a bar one night, her voice caught the attention of Dan who was just recently been fired from his job. Captivated by her talent and good singing voice, Dan persuades Gretta that he will produce an album featuring her songs. Unable to find a recording studio to back up their plans, they agreed to just record their songs in the streets of New York. They begin by recruiting a team of musicians to help them in their musical collaboration.

Watch Keira Knightley sing "Like a Fool" from the movie Begin Again. In the movie, Gretta sings this particular song and dedicate it to Dave. She expresses her sad feelings about their broken relationship and sings and records it using her cellphone and sending it directly to Dave's voice mail. The way she does this is heart-warming and at the same time humorous in a way. The Soundtrack of this movie holds the number 1 position in my playlist.
