Directed by Once helmer John Carney, the musically infused romantic drama Begin Again has posted its first UK trailer online, starring Mark Ruffalo, Keira Knightley and Adam Levine.

Ruffalo plays A&R man recently fired from his label, and Knightley plays a young singer-songwriter who was just dumped by a rock star (Levine).

Hailee Steinfeld, James Corden, Catherine Keener and Cee Lo Green also star in the 80′s-set movie previously titled Can a Song Save Your Life? which opens in the US in limited release on July 4th and in the UK on July 11th.

Ruffalo is excellent in the lead role and Levine is a surprise standout. Some of the dialogue is a bit cornball, but there’s an earnest charm some will dig.

Watch it below.

The latest film from writer-director John Carney (ONCE), BEGIN AGAIN is a soul-stirring comedy about what happens when lost souls meet and make beautiful music together. Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam 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 (Mark 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. BEGIN AGAIN is produced and financed by Exclusive Media and produced by Anthony Bregman, Tobin Armbrust and Judd Apatow.
