Synopsis

From the director of the ACADEMY AWARD® Winning film Once (Best Original Song), CAN A SONG SAVE YOUR LIFE? stars ACADEMY AWARD® Nominees Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, Hailee Steinfeld and Catherine Keener. Anthony Bregman (ETERNAL SUNSHINE OF THE SPOTLESS MIND, OUR IDIOT BROTHER) will produce with Judd Apatow (BRIDESMAIDS, KNOCKED UP, SUPERBAD) executive producing.
Seduced by dreams of making it in the big city, Gretta (Knightley) and her long-time boyfriend move to New York to pursue their passion for music. She’s heartbroken when he dumps her for the fame and fortune of a big solo contract, leaving Gretta all on her own. Her world takes a turn for the better when a down-on-his-luck record producer (Ruffalo) stumbles upon her singing in a local bar and is immediately captivated by her raw talent and inspiring authenticity – they may be each other’s last chance to turn their lives around. Somewhere between friendship and their love of music, the two strangers strike a chord that captures the hearts of everyone around them, proving that every great story has its own soundtrack.
