It’s hard to watch this film and not feel like you’re floating. It’s the kind of film that makes you remember emotions and feelings that you thought were numbed by every good thing that became before it. It means one thing - it’s the kind of film that makes you feel new feels, and that’s something spectacular in and of itself. I loved this film. Kiera Knightly has never been better and she is magic alongside of Mark Ruffalo. It’s a love letter to the art of creation so it has a special place inside of me. The music itself is really fantastic and with a purchase itself (which I’m doing as I type this). There are so many clever and beautiful sequences here that I’d love to go into great detail about, but I’d really rather just convince you to check it out yourself. This is easily one of my favourite films of the year so far. It’s a beautiful, entertaining, and powerful little flick. I liked Carney’s “Once”, I love “Begin Again” - looking forward to a nice third instalment of this ‘making-an-album’ trilogy!
