Sing Street

Synopsis:

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 named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) 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, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), 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. 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 decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos. Inspired by writer/director John Carney's 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.

As a teenager in the early 80’s, so much about this film resonated with me.....the kohl-rimmed eyes, blue eye shadow, big hair, mohair jumpers, bangles all the way up my arm, a huge crush on John Taylor (Duran Duran) and David Sylvian (Japan). I even made my boyfriend dye his hair blonde and wear eyeliner much to the disgust of his parents. Oh, they were the days!!

Anyway, the film was brilliant. A fabulous story about chasing your dreams including the love of your life. The music was fantastic and it was just a lovely feel-good film.
