In 2007 the world was treated to the rare gift of a love story full of romance and original music making, garnering an Oscar for best music. The plot revolves around a young and musically talented Irish vacuum repairman (Glen Hansard), moonlighting as a street musician in Dublin and hoping for a big break. One day a Czech immigrant (Marketa Irglova), who earns a living selling flowers, approaches him with the news that she is also an aspiring singer-songwriter. The pair decide to collaborate, and the songs they compose reflect the story of their blossoming love. The film includes 13 original songs written by the two stars. The story was later remade as a hit Broadway show in 2012 and received 11 Tony nominations, winning eight of them. Join us as we enjoy this uplifting movie together.
