Keira Knightley can sing? Yes, it’s true. The Oscar-nominated actress stars opposite Maroon 5’s Adam Levine and Mark Ruffalo in Begin Again, written and directed by John Carney (Once), where she gets to show off her singing ability. And in this music video from the romantic comedy, Knightley sings “Like a Fool” from the film’s soundtrack.
Begin Again is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.
