Sing Street (2016)
Updated: Jul 31, 2019
Love this!! It's like an updated Commitments. Slightly less grimy, but still with enough miserable reality to tick that box. It's a lot more hopeful though and sweet. Actually it's not really like The Commitments at all. The Commitments is not sweet. While that film smacks of hope, what's on screen is brutal, dirty and real. Sing Street is a different beast. It's romantic and full of youthful abandon, great music and three fantastic characters in Ferdio Walsh-Peelo (awesome name), Lucy Boynton and the scene stealing Jack Reynor. I defy anyone with a heart to watch this and not gasp, smile and want to punch the air. Fantastic stuff.
