Begin Again, to me is not just a movie about guitar, songs, or artists, it’s a beautiful tale about not giving up, second chances, finding your real capability, and most importantly, believing in one another.
It’s 3 am in the morning and I’m lying down on my bed, having random thoughts about my life and my career. I start listening to a song, ” It’s hunting season and the lambs are on the run, searching for meaning, But are we all lost stars, trying to light up the dark?”, and suddenly, I had goosebumps and I find myself watching ‘Begin Again’ all over again.
I was completely demotivated to do something in my life because of a lot of things going on in my life and then, my best friend suggested me to watch ‘Begin Again’. Begin Again, to me is not just a movie about guitar, songs, or artists, it’s a beautiful tale about not giving up, second chances, finding your real capability, and most importantly, believing in one another.
When Greta played the song for the first time in front of everyone, she didn’t know what exactly she was capable of and when Dan sees her playing the guitar and singing, he knew what exactly she was capable of, that reminded me of the fact that a lot of times we do not realize our own potential and once we do, we should not give up on our dreams or our passion. One of the scenes that really left me awestruck was the way Dan pulls the strings to make Greta’s album without much money and no studio, Loved the way they pull it off. I learned from both Greta and Dan about not giving up, Dan believed in her that she could pull off the album without a proper recording studio, Greta believed that Dan will be by her side and she trusted the way he showed her.
I can agree that there was the magic of fate when it came to the way Greta and Dan changed each other’s lives. They met each other when they were miserable, but what stood out is the way they never questioned each other about not making it to the end and they didn’t let their insecurities come in their way. I might not play guitar or sing to people, but to me, the music in this movie meant something, the lyrics, the characters, and the bond that is shown between Greta and Dan, meant something. It is rare to find that kind of bond between two strangers today. Sometimes I wish I had a friend with whom I can share a splitter where you can put two headphones in one input and just go around the city singing and dancing.
If you find yourself, lost in this ocean of negative thoughts, insecurities, and demotivation, ‘Begin Again’ is the movie for you. It’s a reminder to you that starting all over again is sometimes the push we need in our lives, is it going down the same path or going down a new path.
