Catherine Keener has joined the cast of Can a Song Save Your Life?, Deadline reports. She joins Mark Ruffalo, Keira Knightley, and Adam Levine in the movie from Once director John Carney. The movie follows a guy (Levine) who dumps his singer girlfriend (Knightley), who gets discovered in a bar by a down-and-out record producer (Ruffalo), who's estranged from his wife (Keener). This doesn't make up for the fact that Frank or Francis isn't happening, but who are we to look a Catherine Keener gift movie in the mouth?
