Final International Film of the Semester? "Once"

This is a film you don't want to miss. We will be showing this wonderful film on March 26th at two times, 7pm and 9pm, so come to whichever showing is better for you. Winner of the Oscar for Best Original Song for "Falling Slowly" as well as many other awards for the song or score or simply best movie. This is the last scheduled International Film for this semster, but we may have a special announcement coming up, so stay tuned for that. As usual, the screening will be in the library auditorium, LI 120, and you are welcome to stick around to discuss the film afterward.

An (unnamed) Guy is a Dublin guitarist/singer-songwriter who makes a living by fixing vacuum cleaners in his Dad's Hoover repair shop by day, and singing and playing for money on the Dublin streets by night. An (unnamed) Girl is a Czech who plays piano when she gets a chance, and does odd jobs by day and takes care of her mom and her daughter by night. Guy meets Girl, and they get to know each other as the Girl helps the Guy to put together a demo disc that he can take to London in hope of landing a music contract. During the same several day period, the Guy and the Girl work through their past loves, and reveal their budding love for one another, through their songs.

See you at the screening, and Jai Ho!
