Begin Again: The Movie

I went to see the film Begin Again today with my mum. O.M.G!! Awesome!!! It was absolutely fantastic. If you get a chance to see it, you should.

The basic premise is that a record executive is having life trouble and gets very drunk one evening. While drunk he goes to a bar and sees a young singer/songwriter perform one of her songs. He immediately sees potential in her and approaches her to offer a recording deal. But what comes next is so interesting - they end up recording songs outside all over New York City.

The music is lovely (very folky, indie sort of music) and the story line is great. I absolutely loved the ending, and so did my mum. We were both blown away by the simplicity of the lovely storyline, the great characters and the music. It is a feel-good movie, it isn't overly dramatic, it isn't depressing, and it's not cliched. There are some fantastic laugh-out-loud parts and a few pretty cool cameos (in my opinion).
