Weekend Single Mama Movie: Once

by mssinglemama on March 29, 2008

When I popped Once in, I couldn’t even remember what it was about. I ordered it from Netflix ages ago. The description says it’s a love story and a musical in Dublin. Oh boy. I usually hate musicals and couldn’t remember why I ordered it … but god am I glad I did.

This might be a bit of a spoiler…but I want you to read it anyway, especially if you aren’t going to watch it.

So girl meets guy. Lovely music, beautiful songs. But she’s acting elusive and talking about “responsibilities.”And then she asks him to dinner. He walks into her apartment and there she is … a sweet little toddler! She’s a single mom!

Guy’s face warps from a beaming smile to shock as he puts two and two together. What a way to tell a guy, huh? Then after dinner guy leaves and this is the scene that almost made me cry … the mom just starts cleaning and cleaning. Doing the dishes, sweeping up and then she collapses on the couch into a ball of pure exhaustion.

I don’t want to spoil the end. I couldn’t find the scene when he walks into the apartment … but you get a glimpse of it in this trailer.

P.S. Watched the last 20 minutes with Benjamin and he LOVED it.

Have you seen any good movies lately? Please tell me … time to order some more from Netflix. And here are some more movies I love.
