Begin Again Trailer

Keira Knightley, Adam Levine, and Mark Ruffalo Make Sweet Music

Begin Again debuted months ago at the Toronto International Film Festival (back when it was still known as Can a Song Save Your Life?) to cautiously optimistic reviews, and now we're finally getting a peek at the movie. Keira Knightley stars as the dejected ex-girlfriend of a budding rock star (Adam Levine, playing a rude version of himself) who catches the attention of a down-on-his-luck New Yorker (Mark Ruffalo). He's in the throes of depression when he hears her play a song at a bar and insists that they start writing music together. Of course, complications ensue when her ex comes back into the picture. Hailee Steinfeld, Catherine Keener, and Mos Def also star in the musical dramedy.

I'm already feeling heart pangs. This looks so cute, and I'm especially interested because this is written and directed by John Carney, the creator of Once. Plus, how could you not be excited about a CeeLo Green cameo? Ridiculous. The movie hits theaters July 4 (sounds like a perfectly breezy Summer romance to me!), so check out the trailer below.
