A quirky love story, that’s what Once is. I saw a review in which it is billed as a musical. Not so, unless one expands that genre wide as can be. Full of Irish rock, scenes in Dublin that had me homesick, tenderness abounding. And not the ending you’re going to expect.
It’s at the Esquire on Ludlow – go see it! It’s fun – more like a how-did-this-band-get-started video in some ways. Love is always lurking on Dublin’s streets, night or day – and you can sure feel that in this movie.
