‘Sing Street’ – Cinefest series

Dec 13, 2016 7:00 pm

| $11 - $12

SING STREET

Irish writer-director John Carney refreshed the film musical with the Oscar-winning ‘Once’ and his follow-up ‘Begin Again’.  With his new film Carney takes us to 1980s Dublin for a semi-autobiographical tale about a teenager who turns to music to escape his chaotic home life – and, naturally, to impress a girl.

Forced to start over at a rough public school when his parents pull him from a private school due to their financial struggles, 14-year-old Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) becomes enamoured of the beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton). Eager to make an impression, Conor invites Raphina to star in his band’s music video – despite the fact that he has not formed a band, or even written any music.

With the guidance of his drop-out older brother, Conor restyles himself as “Cosmo,” recruits some enthusiastic but musically untrained schoolmates and sets out to make a band from scratch by studying the New Wave stars of the era like Duran Duran. Soon, the ragtag group is shooting music videos and looking to wow their fellow students – and meanwhile, Cosmo starts making progress in his quest to win Raphina’s heart.

Featuring a stellar soundtrack that mixes nostalgic hits and original music, Sing Street combines a scrappy energy and the sweetness of a coming-of-age love story. As with the director’s previous hits, Carney’s latest is sure to have audiences cheering and singing along once again.
