From LEGOs to Zombeavers: A Tribeca Film Fest Trailer Round Up
Begin AgainSynopsis: Gretta (Keira Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend Dave (Adam Levine) are college sweethearts and songwriting partners who decamp for New York when he lands a deal with a major label. But the trappings of his new-found fame soon tempt Dave to stray, and a reeling, lovelorn Gretta is left on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when Dan (Mark Ruffalo), a disgraced record-label exec, stumbles upon her performing on an East Village stage and is immediately captivated by her raw talent. From this chance encounter emerges an enchanting portrait of a mutually transformative collaboration, set to the soundtrack of a summer in New York City.
Reason To Watch: Formerly known as Can A Song Save Your Life?, this romantic comedy with a dash of sweet tunes comes from John Carney, the writer-director who brought the world the sensational musical romance Once. Considering how wonderful that film was, we expect great things out of Begin Again, which also boasts performances from Catherine Keener, James Corben, Mos Def, and Academy Award-nominated ingénue Hailee Steinfeld. Notably, this much-anticipated pic has been given the honor of screening on the Tribeca Film Festival's final night.
Beyond the Brick: A Lego BrickumentarySynopsis: LEGO bricks have captured imaginations for generations, and today, the community of builders is bigger than ever: Adult Fans of LEGO (AFOLs) display their latest creations at Brick Conventions, self-proclaimed Master Builders create entire worlds out of the modular bricks, and a corporate design team plans the Times Square unveiling of the largest LEGO model ever created. Directed by Oscar-winner Daniel Junge and Oscar- nominee Kief Davidson, Beyond the Brick: A LEGO Brickumentary playfully delves into the extraordinary impact of the LEGO brick, its massive global fan base, and the innovative uses for it that have sprung up around the world.
Reason To Watch: We all loved The LEGO Movie. But if that love inspired you to pick up the blocks you'd dropped in childhood, this carefully constructed documentary will speak to you. After all, who says LEGOs are just for kids?
