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 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.
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.
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.
