Product Description

Sing Street takes us back to 1980s Dublin where an economic recession forces Conor 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 finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious and über-cool Raphina, and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. 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 ‘80s, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their hearts into writing lyrics and shooting videos. Combining Carney’s trademark warmth and humour with a punk rock edge, and featuring a memorable soundtrack with hits from The Cure, Duran Duran, The Police, and Genesis, Sing Street is an electrifying coming-of-age film that will resonate with music fans across the board.

I encountered Sing Street as an exclusive showing at my local cinema, by virtue of being a subscription holder. I knew nothing about the film and had no compelling reason to see it, other than having nothing better to do and it was free.
I absolutely loved it. It may have helped that I recognised something of the characters in myself and my friends, as we were of a similar age in the 80's (I'm 49, now). I really enjoyed how Cosmo and his band were influenced by iconic bands of the time and evolved their own style rather rapidly. It may not be realistic, but it was fantastic fun. Many of the characters felt slightly awkward and as if they were having to try very hard to be rebellious teenagers; just like we were when we were their age. Cosmo (Ferdio Walsh-Peelo) developed really nicely as a character over the course of the film and Raphina (Lucy Boynton) was a cracker from start-to-finish.
Of course, the bespoke tunes are a major feature of the film and by-and-large, I really enjoyed them. To the extent that I'm listening to the soundtrack periodically and trying not to sing along while I'm walking down the street with headphones on.
I was terribly disappointed that the film had such a limited cinema release, as I wanted the rest of my family to see it. I'm glad that I didn't have to wait too long for it to be released on disc. We'd watched it within a few hours of it turning up in the post.
There were parts of the film where I sat in the cinema on my own, blubbing my eyes out. Watching it at home, I was much the same; in the same places. Did I mention that I'm a 49 year-old bloke?
Do yourself a favour. If you've not seen it, give it a go. if you have, watch it again.

There’s an unwritten rule that films about music have to be 80% optimism and 20% wish-fulfillment, and John carney’s Sing Street certainly fits this template. You also know you’re no longer young when films thriving on nostalgia are set when you were a similar age to the protagonist(s); I was thirteen in 1985 and can well remember the post-Falklands era of great but underrated pop music, strikes, and O-levels, while the appearance of the old Top of the Pops theme music and accompanying graphics is one of many spine-tingling moments in this joyous coming-of-age film. Granted, there are some fairly glaring inconsistencies in terms of the music of the era, and a lack of depth in characterization and background, however this being the type of film it is these can be overlooked.
The startlingly-named Ferdia Walsh-Peelo plays Cosmo, a bashful young man who starts a band for the oldest reason in the world - to woo a girl. The girl in question is wannabe model Raphina – played by the gorgeous Lucy Boynton, and Cosmo becomes determined to win her through signing her up to be in the music videos for his new band. What follows is fairly standard, but the performances from the likes Of Walsh-Peelo, Boynton, Jack Reynor (as Cosmos’s worldly-wise older brother), and Ben Carolan, as well as support from more established names such as Aidan Gillen and Don Wycherley, are what make this such a great, and ultimately uplifting experience.

The reviewer above has said it all really – except that the film is set in Dublin (with those lyrical accents). It’s an upbeat and fun film – both moving and hilarious in equal measure. Great cast and some really good music – have ordered my copy of the CD. Well done to John Carney and everyone involved for this little gem!

I haven't watched a film that has touched me in a pure and delightful way. The setting was done perfectly. The characters were just that, characters. I was suitably entertained. It was a shame that we could not see more of them because they could all have told a great story. I am going to recommend this film to everyone I know!

This is definitely at the top of my all time favourite movies. The feelings this film invokes in me, from my childhood of the 80's, is probably unparalleled by any other movie. Yes I was in a band and played at my high school doo's at the very time this film portrays which is why it effects me so much. The music and other attention to period detail is marvellous, even the bicycle headlight is the same as the one I had! Absolutely brilliant thank you so much.

By Moira TOP 500 REVIEWER on 4 Jun. 2016
Format: DVD
The film is set in Dublin in 1985. When the economy and 15 year old Connor's family finances take a downturn. his parents take him out of his fee-paying Jesuit school and send him to Synge Street, a step down the ecclesiastical educational ladder, run by Christian Brothers. While negotiating his new surroundings, he meets 16 year old Raphina, who lives nearby and claims to be a model. In an attempt to impress her, Connor says he can get her a part in the video his band are shooting. All he has to do then is form a band, write some music and set up a video shoot.

It may sound improbable or just plain cheesy on paper, but the plot and dialogue are deftly handled by writer and director John Carney. The young actors playing the band members are well chosen both for their musical skills and their ability to portray characters of that age. The incremental improvements they make as they go along are plausible. The songs like The Riddle Of The Model and Drive It Like You Stole It, written for the film, are affectionate pastiches of certain types of 1980s music. It's funny to watch Connor turning up at school each week in a new style dependant on which band he has just discovered and wants to emulate.

There is a lot going on in the background too, especially relating to the break up of Connor's parents' marriage and Raphina's troubled background, but these are not overdone. True to the self-centred outlook of their age the band are concerned with their music and what's in front of them. There is good support from older characters, especially Connor's big brother Brendan, a drop-out with an impressive record collection and and knowledge of genres and trends, which Connor casually passes off as his own.

A great film that hits all the right notes musically and as a coming of age tale.
