Once and for All

So the other night I was supposed to see Sunshine but the theater was at full capacity. So no luck. Instead, I was treated to Once which was a movie I heard tons and tons of good things about. Now, not being a fan of these craptastic “Neo-Musicals” like Hairspray or that crap Richard Gere was in, I was a little reserved about seeing this in the theater. It’s what a musical should be. Beautiful. It’s a movie that’s sweet, funny, moving and the ending doesn’t over cheese it (and it sooo could have). It features two principals that are unknown (Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová) but do what they’re supposed to: act. And act well. I felt that pressure in teh chest that comes along with goosebumps at times. Enjoy some of the music. Seriously, beautiful.
