I've told you all before that I'm usually a couple years late seeing good movies. This time I was about 5. Better late than never, right?
B watched the movie Once the other night (he was having a camp out in the playhouse with the kids and watched it on his laptop while they were sleeping....yes, it is about 84 degrees right now during the day and the nights have been blissfully warm!) He immediately had me come watch a few of his favorite parts with him after it ended. The next night, he insisted we watch it together.
All I can say is I loved every minute of it. It is a sweetly intimate, simple story that is also very powerful. And the music, written by the two main actors, is fantastic (OMG! this song!). B declared it the best movie ending he had seen in as long as he could remember. I told him I would be a better person if I could watch a movie like that once a week. (Hey, we might have had some wine that night, what can I say?) I know for sure that I fell asleep that night thinking about it and woke up the next morning doing the same thing. Gah, I love when that happens.
Have you seen it? Did you love?
