Gretta and her boyfriend move to New York to launch Dave’s music career – he skyrockets to fame and leaves Gretta behind.
She meets Dan. He’s a music producer who’s founded an independent record label. They team up, put together a band, and record Gretta’s album – an outdoor album. Will Gretta’s own musical experience bring her back to Dave, or will she strike out on her own?
This film generally has a good vibe – that is if you don’t mind Keira Knightly, or the fantastical idea that songs can be recorded quite so easily and so quickly. Some film reviewers comment on the film’s realism – they’ve obviously never worked in the music industry!
Realism aside, I like the romance angle. I also think there are great performances throughout. It’s light, yet passionate. It’s fun, yet moving. This isn’t a stand out flick for me because there’s not quite enough comedic content, but it’s still a good movie and worth seeing.
