Begin Again – Film Locations


Begin Again stars Mark Ruffalo as an A&R executive who is disillusioned with the business when he discovers a young singer-songwriter, played by Keira Knightley, playing at an open-mic night in the East Village.

Inspired by her song, he convinces her to record an open air album, using the city of New York as their studio.

A sweet film with strong performances that showcases how music can affect your view of a place whilst showcasing different sides to the city that don’t often appear on the big screen.
