THURSDAY BEGIN AGAIN
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.
