Plot: “Songwriting duo and couple Gretta (Keira Knightley) and Dave (Adam Levine) decided to seek their fortune in NYC. When Dave is signed by a major label, temptation proves too powerful for him to resist and the couple call it quits. Crestfallen, Gretta fights to get back on her feet until one night, while performing in the East Village, she catches the attention of Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a once-respected music executive who’s since fallen on hard times. Enchanted by Gretta’s powerful voice and skillful songwriting, Dan convinces her to join him in a collaboration that will transform them both over the course of one unforgettable summer.”
This movie falls under the label of “another great summer movie getting looked over because everyone is seeing the blockbusters instead”. This movie is a hidden gem. It was so enjoyable with a great cast and wonderful music! Also, the city of New York is the other character of this film. If you love music and NYC, this movie is for you.
It was refreshing to see Mark Ruffalo (The Avengers) and Keira Knightly (Pirates of the Caribbean) playing roles in this heart felt non blockbusterish indy type of feel good movie. The soundtrack and original songs in this movie were catchy and emotional to each of the scenes they were attached too. You probably won’t be able to catch this film in the theater cause it’s on it’s way to video soon, but at least, please catch it when it does!
