Happy St. Patricks Day

It's the day of Irish pride, Guinness taps and green...everywhere green, green, GREEN! And well my specialty is in the cinema, so my top pick today is the 2007 gem Once. Watch it in between Irish car bombs and sing along, rejoicing in this intimate, yet amazing little feature, and the cute love story between a poor Irish busker (Glen Hansard) and a Czech flower girl (Marketa Irglova)-- rejoice it in it's poor Dublin setting (missing the customary Irish miserablism.)
It's a miraculous movie and a great mood reliever for however you choose to celebrate your inner Irish-ness. Here's the Academy Award (YAY!) winning song "Falling Slowly" from this beaut of a movie.
