    The Swell Season Seventh Art Releasing presents The Swell Season, the follow-up to the Oscar-winning film Once. 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. Simmering tensions mount and unhinge in an unforgettable conversation between the two lovers at an outdoor café, and the audience witnesses the raw unraveling of a romance and the reconfiguring of a beautiful musical collaboration. The film follows Glen and Marketa through a period of extraordinary intensity and pressure, which drives both musicians to question their ambitions, identities, and ultimately, their relationship. It's a story of lovers, the burden of dreams, dark family legacies, and in the end, the eternal bond between two searching souls forever linked by their music. "This is a really beautiful love story." - NPR "Raw and honest." - Christian Science Monitor "A bruised-but-sweet flip side to Once's dreamy love song." - The Hollywood Reporter
