Winner of the Audience Award for World Cinema at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, Once is a modern day musical set on the streets of Dublin, featuring Glen Hansard and his Irish band The Frames. Once is the story of an emotionally vulnerable street musician who meets a Czech immigrant unable to afford the piano she yearns for. They are both outsiders, struggling with their art and their hearts. The Los Angeles Times proclaims Once is "Easily the festival's most universally liked film" Through music they find a common bond, and over the course of an intense few days, their relationship blossoms. Putting together a band to rehearse songs and record some demos brings some much-needed impetus to their artistic and personal lives. The New York Times calls Once "Close to perfect" and Rolling Stone raves "The best of the best at Sundance. A gift of a movie that is absolutely worth seeing more than Once." "It may well be the best music film of our generation" says the Chicago Tribune. How often do you find the right person...Once.
