Begin Again

Andrea Pascual

I viewed the film Begin Again (starring Mark Ruffalo and Keira Knightley), without any preconceived notions. Another chick flick, you ask? To me, it was more than that.

I was instantly drawn to Gretta (Knightley) and Dan's (Ruffalo) genuine love for music. As an artist, Gretta was adamant on remaining an indie musician. A creative person myself, I relate to this dilemma: stay true to my roots, or play with the big boys in the mainstream? I think this is true of any art-come-commerce endeavour. What I also enjoyed was Gretta and Dan's plan to record an unedited album in makeshift recording 'studios' scattered around New York City —  sirens, cars and street sounds included. I find this raw attempt at making music quite charming; it reminds me of street art, or the act of painting on a blank canvas without an initial plan. Lastly, a piece of my heart still lives in New York. I cannot help but reminisce traipsing around Union Square, or grabbing a cupcake in Nolita, or running home from school through Times Square in a tired daze while watching this film. My pulse still races with the beat of NYC, even though I no longer live there. How poetic, I know! Honestly, though — this film makes me want to non-stop create, and that's all that really counts, right?
