Like Begin Again, his last love song to the restorative powers of music and collaboration, John Carney can play your heartstrings like an orchestra. And like that film’s original title – Can A Song Save Your Life? – Sing Street addresses songwriting as soul food, with a face full of neon eyeliner and a deliciously poignant streak of youth in revolt. And as a young kid trying to forge a path in 1980s Dublin, there’s plenty to rebel against – institutional alcoholism and abuse, isolation from the mainland and mainstream, and the collapse of your elders’ hopes playing out in an endless depressive cycle. The future looks as bleak as the dark and stormy skies portending above the Irish shore, but it just so happens that these are the conditions where inspiration can strike like a lightning bolt. If you don’t like the only song playing on the radio, you »

Surprising news out of Paramount today after it was revealed that the studio has now pulled the theatrical release of The Little Prince at the 11th hour. Mark Osborne’s stop-motion animation had been pegged for a release today, March 18.
In its place, the long-awaited feature has found a new home at Netflix, with the online giant poised to drop The Little Prince later in 2016. Taking inspiration from Antoine de Saint-Exupery’s beloved 1943 novel – it’s considered a loose adaptation – Osborne’s directorial effort features a combination of stop-motion animation and CGI effects, and began to make waves shortly after its premiere at Cannes International Film Festival last year, where it screened out of competition.

Welcome back to the Definitive List, where for the inaugural top 50, we’re counting down the best romantic comedies. The majority of numbers 50 through 41 weren’t so traditional. A secret-admirer movie, a period piece, a “These two don’t make sense together” movie, and a French fantasy among them, but we still managed to squeak in a Wes Anderson movie and a surrealist masterpiece. It doesn’t get any more traditional from here, as numbers 40 through 31 jumps around just as much, from sub-genre to sub-genre. Regardless, these films have made their mark on the industry and still hold a place in the pantheon of the rom-com hall of fame.
