John Carney sat down with Film.com at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival to discuss his new film Once. The film received the World Cinema Audience Award for a dramatic film at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival.
ONCE is the inspirational tale of two
kindred spirits who find each other on
the bustling streets of Dublin. One
is a street musician who lacks the
confidence to perform his own songs.
The other is a young mother trying to
find her way in a strange new town.
As their lives intertwine, they discover
each other’s talents and push one
another to realize what each had only
dreamt about before.
