I was going to include this in the last post as part of my "Weekend Update," but it really deserves it's own post.
A friend lent us her copy of Once over a month ago and we somehow never got around to watching it (probably because we had never heard of it and therefore weren't motivated to make time for it.)
But after watching the movie's leads win an Oscar for Best Song and hearing their endearing acceptance speeches, I was suddenly gripped by a desire to watch it.
Which we did on Saturday morning - we were floored.
I highly recommend it if you're into indie music and quirky, low-budget films. Both Erich and I woke up this morning with the main song stuck in our heads (odd in its own right) so I scratched the itch by listening to the soundtrack over and over today at work via the Fox Searchlight website. I acknowledged today that I'm probably going to buy the soundtrack because after their sincere speeches about struggling artists, I wouldn't be able to justify burning the songs from someone else.
