A film by John Carney

Cast: Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Aidan Gillen, Maria Doyle Kennedy

Making beautiful 80’s music in an upcoming of age tale that is the new film of John Carney. Carney knows how to play them beautifully well. The movie is funny, sweet, touching, and absolutely sweeps up the audience in 80s pop classics as well as original numbers that you’ll want to play on repeat even dance too.

Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) is a teenager living in Dublin in 1985, and he’s forced to go to Catholic school when his  parents can no longer afford to send him to private school. Conor quickly encounters bullies and strict, stupid rules like “only black shoes,” but he forgets all of that when he sees the beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton) across the street. She tells him she is a model. Eager to impress her, he says he’d like her to be in the video for his band. When she agrees, he quickly  put together a group, write songs, and get a better handle on music of the time thanks to his brother Brendan (Jack Reynor). Although Sing Street starts from a simple premise, Carney makes it surprisingly catchy and it becomes a feel good film. Sing Street there are no  false notes along the way you get to see some kids make beautiful music and even having fun at it. This film has some serious heart ans soul. Have fun.
