Seventh Art Releasing | Release Date: April 22, 2011
Summary: The world fell in love with Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglová when their songwriting collaboration in the film Once culminated in a jubilant Oscar win. But behind the scenes, where Glen and Markéta’s on-screen romance became reality, a grueling two-year world tour threatened to fracture their fated bond. This music-filled documentary is an intimate look at the exhilaration and turmoil created by both love and fame. The Swell Season patiently observes the small gestures, the stolen moments of quiet backstage intimacy, the raw post show folk ballads sung in dark, smoky dressing rooms. Glen and Markéta wake up in strange towns, wander through cities posing for snapshots. We watch as they navigate this strange new realm of public exposure with only each other to depend on.
