Reasons To Watch
1. The Irish feel-good film of the year. 2. Luscious 80s synth-pop soundtrack. 3. Jay-Z was such a big fan he emailed director John Carney to say he loved the movie.
Sing Street takes us back to 1980s Dublin where the recession forces 14-year-old Cosmo out of his comfortable private school and into survival mode at the inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He turns to music and forms a ragtag band, shooting scrappy music videos, and finding refuge and love with the beautiful 16-year-old Raphina.
