In 2008, Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová stunned and moved audiences with their acceptance of the Academy Award for “Falling Slowly,” the theme song to the indie hit film, Once. The Swell Season chronicles what happened next for the couple as their on-screen partnership blurred into their off-screen professional and private lives. This documentary portrait will be presented with a return engagement of Once, a heartfelt tale of a Dublin busker who reconsiders his life when he meets a young Czech immigrant.
