This is the movie that you’ve never heard of but need to see.

Once is this year’s indie-film-that-could, an inspiring story about two musicians who meet in Dublin, Ireland and form a complicated yet beautiful relationship. The movie is not a musical by any means, but it does feature several songs written and performed by lead actor Glen Hansard (of The Frames) and lead actress Marketa Irglova. Hansard, who also appeared in The Commitments, is quite charming as ‘the guy,’ and his chemistry (musical and otherwise) with ‘the girl’ Irglova is both realistic and compelling. 

There are three things I love about this film – the setting, the soundtrack and the overall spirit of the movie.

I am a huge fan of and support independent film. So should you. Go find your local arthouse theatre and make an afternoon of it for Once.
