When the film Once was released at the 2007 Sundance Film Festival, it became an indie hit and made its stars Glen Hansard and Marketa Irglova surprise stars, especially after the two won the Oscar for Best Original Song. Four years later, a new documentary, simply titled The Swell Season, will show the path this duo has taken in the last few years.
As fans already know, the two formed a group called The Swell Season, toured together, and started a romance which ultimately fell apart. The film chronicles their unexpected rise of success and the negative aspects of such fame. The film is directed by first-time feature co-directors Nick August-Perna, Chris Dapkins and Carlo Mirabella-Davis.
