I typically go to the movies less than 5 times a year. This film just might get me out:
Sundance Film Festival World Cinema Audience Award winner ONCE is the inspirational tale of two kindred spirits who find each other on the bustling streets of Dublin. One is a street musician (played by Glen Hansard of The Frames) who lacks the confidence to perform his own songs. The other is a young mother (Marketa Irglova) trying to find her way in a strange new town. As their lives intertwine, they discover each other's talents and push one another to realize what each had only dreamt about before. ONCE is their inspiring story.
The film opens May 18 at select cinemas, check the website here. Special bonus: on the site if you find the "attend a free screening" link, you'll see there's a screening tomorrow night at Landmark Hillcrest tomorrow night. How can you not go?
