Begin Again is a 2013 American musical comedy-drama film written and directed by John Carney, who had originally intended to give it the title, Can A Song Save Your Life?

Knightley plays a singer-songwriter who is discovered by a struggling record label executive (Ruffalo) and collaborates with him to produce an album recorded in public locations all over New York City.A chance encounter between a disgraced music-business executive and a young singer-songwriter new to Manhattan turns into a promising collaboration between the two talents.After the success of his 2007 musical film, Once, Carney wrote the script for Begin Again in 2010 and employed Gregg Alexander to compose most of the film's music. With a US$8 million budget, production began in July 2012 with filming taking place in various locations around New York City. The film premiered in September 2013 at the Toronto International Film Festival and was released theatrically in June of 2014, in conjunction with the release of the film's soundtrack. It grossed $47 million at the international box office and received mostly positive reviews from critics.Dan Mulligan (Mark Ruffalo) is a record label executive living in New York City who is estranged from his wife Miriam (Catherine Keener) and struggling to keep up with the changing music industry. After being fired from his job, he goes on a drinking binge which leads him to a bar in the East Village where he encounters Gretta James (Keira Knightley, who does her own singing), a young and fiercely independent songwriter who has just broken up with her long-time boyfriend and songwriting partner Dave Kohl (Adam Levine of Maroon 5), a successful musician who had an affair with one of his producers. Captivated by Gretta's music, Dan offers to sign her to his former record label, and although she initially refuses she reconsiders the offer and agrees.
