Ann and Les simply glow about Once (2006.) They wish everyone they know – and everyone they don’t – will go see this movie. Simply put, it’s a delightful Irish tale about love and music. The leads, Glenn Hansard and Marketa Irglova, are just charming. Many many kudos to writer-director John Carney - he should be showered with praise more than once. For their GREENLIGHT Rentals, Les stays in Ireland to recommend one of his favorites of all time, The Quiet Man (1952.) The leads in this film, John Wayne, Maureen O’Hara, and Victor McLaglen are in complete control of this witty and forceful film but Les wants you to particularly watch for the quiet charm of Barry Fitzgerald too in this John Ford classic. Ann goes to France for her rental to bring you a delightful musical featuring the talented beauty Catherine Deneuve who plays a young girl in a dilemma about marrying the boy she loves (and whose baby she’s having,) played by Nino Castelnuovo , or the nice rich boy her mother, played by Anne Vernon , would prefer. And she does it all in melodic song in The Umbrellas of Cherbourg (1964.)
