Its story is far more complex than it initially seems, with the offstage life of the people who starred in the movie and wrote its songs paralleling the fictional world they inhabited in an eerily prescient way.The boy is Glen Hansard, a 47-year-old Irish indie musician, who spent most of his career with a well-regarded but largely under-the-radar group called The Frames.
