A boy growing up in Dublin during the 1980s escapes his strained family life by starting a band to impress the mysterious girl he likes.
"Sing Street" is a wish-fulfilment comedy about idealism, aspiration and getting off with girls, riffing on that age-old truth that being in a band might just give you the cachet that will make up for a lack of money and looks. And how many important artistic careers have been ignited at the very beginning by just this conviction?
Directed by John Carney ("Once") "Sing Street" should strike a chord not only with those ageing 80s nostalgists, but also with teen audiences who have long outgrown their Camp Rock DVDs and are ready for a little more grit amid the glitter.
