A modern day musical set on the streets of Dublin. It tells the story of a busker and an immigrant during an eventful week as they write, rehearse and record songs that reveal their unique love story.
But to go to a movie, during the day, child-free seemed so decadent. Such a splurge. So much freedom. So naughty. As one friend put it, 'it's like skinny-dipping'. But whatever it is, I went today and I'm oh so glad I did.Touching. Real. Organic. Authentic. Bittersweet. F@#king Brilliant. All describe Once. Beautiful music. Deep, thoughtful, emotionally honest characters. I loved this movie and the music that went with it. The characters are never named, but they don't need to be. They are you, they are me, they are anybody. I won't go into the plot or anything, but if you haven't seen it, either find it at a theater near you or be sure to rent it. Buy the soundtrack. But I guarantee the soundtrack will mean more to you if you've seen the movie. I hope there is more skinny-dippin' in my future and I really hope that it can be as rewarding as today.
