Sydney Film Festival 2014 - Begin Again

This is a slight US indie with charming performances and some theories about the modern music industry. I can see this film being marketed as a romantic comedy, but that would be sad as it is more about people just trying to connect rather than a romance. It has a soundtrack that is singer/songwriter driven in the pop/folk genre, which is limiting and very white. There is a nod to Cee Lo Green as a successful rapper, however it is really all about white middleclass hipsters and their music. It is a nice way to spend a couple of hours if you want to relax and just have a movie wash over you while eating popcorn.
