Adam Levine, Keira Knightley talk singing, acting and closing Tribeca with their film ‘Begin Again’
Adam Levine, Keira Knightley and Hailee Steinfeld were in attendance at New York’s Tribeca Film Festival this week, showing their support for their latest film ‘Begin Again.’ The film is a personal project for Director John Carney, who both directed and wrote the script to the film.
The story itself centers on the life of Keira Knightley’s character Greta, who is dumped by her recently signed boyfriend (played by Adam Levine) and in the aftermath of the relationship, sets out on her own musical career. During this transition she meets Mark Ruffalo, a down on his luck music executive looking to make a comeback after a string of failures leaves him less than successful in his industry.
The original title of the film was ‘Can A Song Save Your Life,’ it was changed pre-Tribeca for something a little simpler. The film features a musical Knightley, who hasn’t had any classical or professional training in singing, outside of two lessons for the film, she admitted at Tribeca. The film was the closing piece for Tribeca, a fitting tribute to the city that plays host to both the festival and the film.
