Indiewire has released their summer movie preview, and it’s chockfull of NFF titles. Below, read up on the anticipated summertime hits and be sure to check them out ahead of their release dates at the festival.
Why is it a “Must See”? Director John Carney is the artist who gave us Once in 2006, the subtle drama about the variety of lives and music that draws them together. It’s safe to say that Begin Again (previously titled Can a Song Save Your Life?) was placed in good hands. Also in this film is a chance to see period-drama champ Keira Knightley singing all over modern day New York, guitar in hand. A chance encounter leads to her collaboration with washed-up music exec Mark Ruffalo as they start on a new album.
