CAST: Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Aidan Gillen, Maria Doyle Kennedy DIRECTOR: John Carney CAPTIONED ON WEDNESDAYS
From director John Carney (ONCE, BEGIN AGAIN), SING STREET takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents' relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, uber-cool and beautiful Raphina, and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band's music videos. There's only one problem: he's not part of a band...yet.
Few films are ever as enjoyable and endearing as Sing Street. From its five-star cast to its unforgettable soundtrack, Carney's latest musical masterpiece dances around with a jovial charm that's addicting and innocent enough to revisit again and again.Michael Roffman, Consequence of Sound
Sing Street blends relatable strife, young love and cheering acts of rebellion into a funny and foot-tapping treat.Emma Simmonds, The List
