Directed by John Carney
A delightful coming-of-age musical about a boy, Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo), who starts a band in 1980s Ireland in a bid to impress Raphina (Lucy Boynton), a would-be model. The film is a funny and touching semi-autobiographical account of director John Carney's upbringing in Dublin, where he attended the real Synge Street school. He chose unknown actors as his leads, who also sing their own songs. Much of the music was composed by Gary Clark of the band Danny Wilson, but the director himself also chipped in. This 2016 film is sometimes compared to The Commitments, but Sing Street is less gritty and more romantic, with the band dreaming bigger dreams.
Screening as part of BFI Musicals! The Greatest Show on Screen, a UK-wide film season supported by National Lottery, BFI Film Audience Network and ICO. bfimusicals.co.uk
