Bryan Lienesch84 - It's Indie (the music scene, anyway) without being pretentious, rebellious without being obstructive.

Sober Film Critic James Brown75 - As a guy in my twenties who has steered away from the subpar music landscape of today, I wholeheartedly believe that the industry has gone to hell. A film for music aficionados, the sugary Begin Again shows us the path to find the new pearls of this endangered art today.
