John Carney’s follow-up to the fantastic indie-musical Once premeired in Toronto last fall under the name Can a Song Save Your Life? The Weinstein Company, apparently feeling that title was unable to save an already difficult marketing campaign, has changed the name to Begin Again.
Personally I don’t think the new moniker is any better, but no matter. The film it self looks intriguing. Carney continues his infatuation with down-and-out musicians. Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightly star, alongside Hailee Steinfeld, Catherine Keener, Ceelo Green, and Maroon 5 frontman Adam Levine in his first movie role.
Watch out for another Best Song contender with this one. Even unheard, the pedigree is too strong to ignore.
