You’re going to fall in love with SING STREET! Not only is it a coming of age movie, and as far as I’m concerned you can’t go wrong with one of those, but it’s full of music — 80’s music!
Set in 1980s Dublin, 14-year-old Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) is looking for escape. His parents’ marriage is falling apart and the kids and teachers at his new inner-city school are really rough.
When he meets the mysterious, very cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), his hopes for romance are raised, and he asks her to star in his non-existent band’s music videos. When she says yes, he’s forced to figure out how to start a band.
He names himself “Cosmo”, forms a band with a few lads and the group puts everything they have into writing lyrics and shooting music videos with an energetic 80’s musical style.
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.
