Once is an Academy Award-winning 2006 Irish musical film written and directed by John Carney. Set in Dublin, this naturalistic drama stars musicians Glen Hansard (of popular Irish rock band The Frames) and Markéta Irglová as struggling musicians. Collaborators prior to making the film, Hansard and Irglová composed and performed all of the original songs in the movie.

Hansard and Irglová‘s song “Falling Slowly” received a 2008 Academy Award for Best Original Song and the soundtrack as a whole also received a Grammy nomination. Once... Read on...
