About the Movie

SING STREET takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. There’s only one problem: he’s not part of a band…yet. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised - calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos. Inspired by writer/director John Carney’s (ONCE, BEGIN AGAIN) life and love for music, SING STREET shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater.

Happy/Sad

If you want to know what that means, you’ll have to see the movie, which is definitely on one of my top ten of the year so far. The acting is terrific. The music is phenomenal. And what is it with those rabbits? A fantastic cast, including Jack Reynor, who plays the protagonist’s brother that let his dreams slip away. If you haven’t picked up the soundtrack yet, do it right now.

This Director Just Gets It

This is easily my favorite film of the year so far. Right from the get-go, you know that this movie is going to deal with real emotional stakes and family dynamics and issues. But what Carney understands is how to blend the fantastical with the viscerally real to make a wholly amazing experience with copious amounts of joy and a surprising amount of depth.

Not to mention, the music, original and soundtrack, is amazing and masterfully incorporated into the story as much more than a gimmick.

What more can you ask from a film?

I'm a 60 year old male. Sing Street made me laugh, made me cry, and made me continuously tap my foot to the beat. Amazingly good soundtrack and brilliant performances from, who at least to me, are unknowns. Bravo!
