"Begin Again" and IMHO the song that deserved the oscar

a fine film and my favorite of the year. It was directed by John Carney who brought us the great indy movie "Once". If you all remember this was the "movie of 2007. "Begin Again" was made for $8,000,000. Unheard of in this day and age.

It is a movie about a very strong woman and Keira Knightly stretches herself way more than "The Imitation game". She had too sing and she is not a singer. Go watch this movie and you will see why this song deserved the Oscar.

keira knightly- "Begin Again and The imitation game

I've seen both and keira is certainly more stretched in "Begin Again" where she had to sing. "Begin Again" is certainly my favorite movie of the year and is the work of John Carney of "Once" fame. It is too bad that these types of movies don't get consideration by the Oscars. The Oscars is a PR game and that is it. The Grand Budapest Hotel is only an average film.

If you haven't seen "Begin Again" is is worth it and it cost only $8,000,000 to make. Incredible in this day and age.

keira knightly- The Imitatation game and Begin again

i saw both movies(imitation game last night). She was better in Begin Again. Both movies are good but i liked begin Again more. Begin Again is the same director as "Once". Watch them both you won't be disappointed. Keira had to sing in Begin Again" talk about a stretch.
