I haven't seen any of the films nominated for Best Picture at this Year's Oscars, but one of the best movies I've seen this year was one I saw on the plane on my way to Singapore (Singapore Airlines is the only way to fly if you're going to Asia, in my opinion). It's called Once, and it is a "modern day musical set on the streets of Dublin." The story is simple, yet the characters are so well drawn out. The music and performances by the two main characters were honest and vulnerable.

It's a must see.
