I am not a fan of musicals, but I read a review that said that this was one of the best musicals of all times because it was not your typical musical.
Plus my wife is a musician and I thought she might enjoy it! Good to get points occasionally ;)
Glen Hansard of the (Committments, The Frames) is the lead and he is great. The movie is about a Dublin street musician who tries to make it, tracing his activities for a one week period. The movie was filmed by the bass player in Hansards' band Frames.
I give this film the TP five tractors for originality on a low budget non hollywood independent film.
It is rated R because of a few uses of the word F$%k, but other than that it is fine for PG 13.
