Film Review:: Begin Again
I don't get out much. Which is a damn shame because it shifts my equilibrium and realigns my chakras, and whatever else positive stuff I can say about it - it's good juju.
So yesterday after my parenting/school note meltdown I took my sorry ass off to the movies to see Begin Again.
Why? So I could get lost in someone else's world for a while.
I've been wanting to see this film for a while, so was secretly glad there was barely anyone else in the cinema so I could really get into it (side note: chip packets should be banned from coming in. And no I don't want to hear you crunching on your choc top).
It's good. It's really good. I am a huge Keira Knightley fan, and though I'm not so sure about Adam Levine - he played his part well. Or maybe he's not playing a role at all. I am however completely smitten with Mark Ruffalo whose goofy good looks always win my heart. Gosh I love that man.
The story is good. The music is good. The cast is excellent. I really, really loved it.
It's a beautiful study of the frailties of life. The lows. The highs. And the in between moments.
And Keira Knightley has a really great voice.
Definitely go see it.
I give it four stars.
Have you seen any good movies lately?
