Product Description
A serendipitous meeting on the streets of Dublin between a down on his luck Irish street performer and a poor Czech immigrant sparks a bond that plays out in this hip, modern day music film. ONCE follows the two as they write, rehearse and record the songs that reveal their unique love story.
Winner of the World Audience Award at Sundance, Once starts out as a small-scale romance, like Before Sunrise, before arriving somewhere unexpected. An Irish busker (Glen Hansard, the Frames and The Commitments) meets a Czech flower seller (Markéta Irglová) while singing on the streets of Dublin. (In the credits, they're listed as Guy and Girl.) She likes what she hears and lets him know. Turns out she's a musician, too. They work on a few songs together and a friendship is forged. She lives with her widowed mother, who doesn't speak English. He lives with his widowed father, who owns a repair shop. Since he broke up with his girlfriend, the guy has been drifting, unable and unwilling to get his life in order. The girl encourages him to pursue a record deal, and the guy emerges from his funk. Then he makes a move on the girl, who rejects his advances. He's confused, but as he comes to find, there's a reason she’s keeping her distance. Though Once is filled with appealing folk-pop by Hansard and Irglová (released on CD as The Swell Season), the movie isn't a traditional musical, but rather a more optimistic Brief Encounter. Filmmaker John Carney, Hansard's former bandmate, captures the real city--in all its affluence and poverty--rather than the picture postcard version. His beautifully shot film serves as a heartfelt ballad about all the underclass Guys and Girls swept aside amidst Ireland's economic miracle. --Kathleen C. Fennessy

Uninsured driver jailed after ploughing into pedestrian in Liverpool city centre - Liverpool Echo

Paul Foley, 42, struck Sara Kearney as she walked across the junction of The Strand and Red Cross Street on her way home from work. Liverpool Crown Court heard the incident happened just yards from the court building as Foley sped through traffic lights in his BMW 3 series - despite having his young children in the car. Judge Denis Watson, QC, who had gasped on seeing dramatic footage showing the moment she was struck and hurled into the air, pointed out that it happened just five months after Foley had previously been caught driving without insurance and while... Foley pleaded guilty on the day of his trial last month to causing serious injury by dangerous driving at around 5. 15pm on April 15, 2013. The court heard that other pedestrians were also crossing the junction and on seeing Foley’s car emerging... Catherine Ellis, prosecuting, said the CCTV footage showed that the traffic lights had changed from green to amber when he was 71 feet away, yet Foley had not slowed down and was heard revving the car’s engine. After the collision Foley, of Ursula Street, Bootle, jumped out of his car and went to try to help his victim. Florist jailed in 2009 The court heard that the florist was previously jailed for five years in 2009 for inflicting grievous bodily harm. Glen Carrasco, defending, said Foley has not driven since the incident. He said at the time of the collision he believed he was on his partner’s motor traders insurance policy but it had lapsed as had the previous policy, when he was stopped in Lancaster five months earlier. Mr Carrasco said that Foley was “acutely aware” that the injuries could have ruined his victim’s life and he was very remorseful. Judge Watson banned Foley from driving for three years.
