I have always had a thing for musicals since I was younger. Although I have yet to see some of the greatest of all time, I have come across some that were awesome but not so well-known. Of them is a movie called Once. Simple enough plotline- guy meets girl, they sing songs and fall in love, and obstacles conveniently get in the way. The songs are really great- “Falling Slowly” was an instant favorite of mine.
What makes this musical so great is that all of the songs in the film are written by the two leads and the film got a few awards. If you aren’t interested in seeing the movie, check out the soundtrack at least- amazing songs.
