Once is a 2007 award-winning Irish romantic musical drama film. It is a truly beautiful story. I watched it on HBO Max.
Roger Ebert says, "It's one of those films where you hold your breath, hoping it knows how good it is, and doesn't take a wrong turn. It doesn't." Empire Online has a positive review. Rotten Tomatoes has a critics consensus score of 97%.
Here's one of the songs:
You can listen to the soundtrack on Spotify:

I have not only seen this film, but I have it on DVD. I'm with you, it is a beautiful film. Of course right now I am more excited I actually recognize something you wrote about. Smile. I watched the new marvel film Shang Chi the other night. It was fun. Have you watched that yet? Happy Wednesday.ReplyDelete
Not yet, but I'm looking forward to it.Delete
This is such a lovely movie. I loved the soundtrack for it -- it's all really good!ReplyDelete
I'm so glad I watched it! It's not my usual thing.Delete
Hopefully it will come around to the other streaming services. Looks good.ReplyDelete
Looks like it's not on HBO max any more, but I see it's on Cinemax and Hulu.Delete
Sorry, but again, I don't have HBO Max. You asked why I have cable instead of the purchased entities like Netflix, Brit Box, Acorn TV, etc. I know the first two are only on the internet. Even though I have adjusted, then changed chairs, I can only sit a short amount of time at my computer, while my back doesn't spasm when I sit on my couch and watch TV. If I could find a way to get these shows on my TV (I don't have WiFi and I don't have a laptop) that cable cord would be cut in a heartbeat.ReplyDelete
We use all of the Netflix, Amazon Prime, BritBox, etc. on our TV. We got rid of cable long before we added any streaming services. Cable prices kept going up, their service kept getting worse, and basic cable kept shrinking. We had tv and internet access both through our cable provider, and when we got rid of our cable service we signed up to another business for internet, though the cable company would have let us switch to internet-only.Delete
Our router has WiFi, so we can use a password to connect laptops, etc. We use this little Roku device (device purchased, non-subscription, no fees) to watch all the streaming services on our TV: https://www.roku.com/products/roku-express
If you ask me it's all much more complicated than it needs to be. I wish it was all plug in and turn on like the pop-up toaster lol, but it can be a pain to figure out how to get things connected.
Although my router has WiFi capability, AT&T charges $10.00/month for WiFi. Scott wants me to get Roku (and has for over a year) and an antenna for local TV, like my beloved PBS and local news. The cable guy told me you must have internet for Roku, but I think he was just trying to keep me in the cable realm.Delete
You do need internet for Roku. I'll bet Scott could explain it all better than I can, but I'll bet you could drop cable and keep your internet service (and add the WiFi for $10 a month) and still save money over whatever their tv service costs. I know we saved bunches dropping cable.Delete
Right now we're paying $60 a month for WiFi-enabled internet. No cable at all, but we get bunches of tv channels with a pretty basic indoor antenna, and we can access a lot of free movies on the TV through services like Tubi. We do enjoy the extra services we subscribe to, but it took us a while to add any.
I have this on DVD and love it. I also saw a theatre production of it just before the first UK lockdown in 2020 and that was amazing. I recommend seeing it on stage if it ever tours in your area.ReplyDelete
I didn't realize it was a play. Cool!Delete
I think I would like this one.ReplyDelete
It's delightful :)Delete
