From the director of international sensation Once comes a soul-stirring comedy about singer-songwriter Greta (Keira Knightley), who after being dumped by her up-and-coming rock star boyfriend (Maroon 5’s Adam Levine) catches the attention of a down-on-his-luck record producer (Mark Ruffalo).

Beneath

BFE
