On this St. Patty’s Day, I recommend the film “Once,” which I watched this weekend. I’m pretty sure you don’t have to be a musician, or even Irish to appreciate it, but if you’re both then it’s even better. It takes place in Dublin, and since I was there just under a year ago it adds a whole other element to it.
I saw the performance that the lead actors/musicians gave at the Oscars and especially loved the speeches that both gave after they won for Best Original Song. Now the movie. It’s all very good and honest and inspiring from a musician, filmmaker, and relationship point of view. If you ain’t gettin’ drunk tonight, go and watch it!
