I attended a friend's Christmas party last night, and a few of us got into a discussion about our favorite movies this year. After quite a number of suggestions, the movie "Once" was the group favorite.
I saw this movie several months ago, at an exclusive preview at the Roxie Theater in SF. My friend Molly got the scoop that this independent film was coming to town as part of the Sundance Film Festival tour, and not only did they show the movie, "Once," to a packed house, but the actors in the film showed up, discussed making the movie, and even played a few tunes from the film.
I'm not normally a fan of musical movies (I didn't like "Dreamgirls" and I won't be watching "Hairspray" anytime soon) but this was a fabulous mix of music, writing, acting, and much more. Check out the trailer, and then rent the movie - it's evidently heading to DVD this week.
Carlos, I fully expect you to comment on this one since you seem to be the leading critic :) /LC
