THURS­DAY BE­GIN AGAIN

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - WEEK IN MOVIES -

8.30PM, FOX­TEL DRAMA/ RO­MANCE ★★ ★

Keira Knight­ley is Gretta, an un­known Bri­tish song­writer stranded in the US af­ter her boyfriend dumps her. A trou­bled tal­ent scout ( Mark Ruff alo) steps in to save the day, and soon Gretta is record­ing her de­but al­bum all over NYC. This is the work of Ir­ish film­maker John Car­ney, whose rootsy style of mesh­ing mu­sic and ro­mance was firmly es­tab­lished with the sur­prise 2007 hit Once. While light­ning doesn’t quite strike twice this re­mains a pleas­ant ef­fort through­out.
