About the Film:
Ends Thursday, June 16.
From director John Carney (ONCE, BEGIN AGAIN), SING STREET takes us back to 1980s Dublin. The story is told through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who is 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). 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.
