6 hours ago | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

James Urbaniak has been cast opposite Nicholas Hoult in “Rebel in the Rye,” the J.D. Salinger biopic directed by Danny Strong.

Movie Review – Sing Street (2016)

20 May 2016 1:30 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sing Street, 2016.

Directed by John Carney.

Starring Lucy BoyntonMaria Doyle KennedyAidan GillenJack ReynorKelly Thornton and Ferdia Walsh-Peelo.

Synopsis:

A group of teenage boys form a band in Dublin, in the 1980’s, to get away from the trials and tribulations of their young lives…

The 1980’s is the current craze. Both Eddie the Eagle and Sing Street take great pride in harking back to those halcyon days of big hair, electro-pop and cups of tea (Even this weeks X-Men: Apocalypse is set in the same period). The loss of Prince, David Bowie and Michael Jackson recently, reminds us how all three existed together in the 1980’s. In 2016, we don’t even have one artist that comes close to these titans of music. Was there something special happening in this era that, only now, we can pick apart? Sing Street recreates a world that’s more than a »

Film Review: Sing Street

18 May 2016 1:09 PM, PDT | CineVue | See recent CineVue news »

★★★★☆ Once director John Carney returns to his native Dublin for Sing Street, a 1980s-set coming-of-age crowdpleaser with real depth, heart and wit to match its toe-tapping musical beats. Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo), a 14-year-old kid who's forced to move from a private school to rowdy public one run by the Christian Brothers when his parents find themselves in financial difficulty. Immediately out of place, Conor is subjected to taunts and attacks by his classmates and teachers. Keen to escape his problems and impress the enigmatic model Raphina (Lucy Boynton) who frequently hangs out across the road, Conor decides to form a band, whose influences range from the Pet Shop Boys to Depeche Mode.

John Carney interview: Sing Street, X-Men, Hitchcock & more

The director of Once, Begin Again and Sing Street talks to us about his new film, getting films noticed, and Hollywood...

Well, Sing Street is just great. The new movie from writer-director John Carney, it tells the story of a young Irish teenager by the name of Cosmo, who – long story short – sets up a band to impress a girl. Yet that sells a funny, nerdy and quite brilliant film short.

Director John Carney – off the back of Once and Begin Again – made the movie. And he spared us some time for a chat about it…

Huge congratulations on Sing Street, which is one of our favourite movies of the year. It’s interesting, though, that it opens opposite a not-very-good X-Men movie this week, and they’re going head to head!

Oh great! [Laughs] That’s like Bernie Sanders and Trump!

I did wonder how you felt about it! »

Exclusive Interview: “It’s not that appealing” – Sing Street star Lucy Boynton on the notion of fame

18 May 2016 5:30 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

  For many fledging young actors, honing their craft in this challenging industry, there comes a realisation – any success in their vocation to lead something rather daunting and unexpected; fame. For London born Lucy Boynton, celebrity status is very much on the cards, following her astounding turn in John Carney’s charming musical, where she plays

It's funny, it's lively, it's feel-good and it's really something special. Here's our review of Sing Street...

A rare luxury in film reviewing is a decent amount of time to consider a movie. Sing Street, the new film from Once and Begin Again director John Carney, isn’t on the surface the kind of movie you think would need it. It’s an energetic, funny coming of age story, set in 1980s Ireland, and swarming with new and classic tunes of the era. It bursts onto the screen, gleefully entertains, and then disappears again. Surely that’s that: an instant hit, and no more than that.

Yet this small, delightful film has stuck firmly in my head for two months since I’ve seen it. And I think that’s proof that details, and a real sense of hand crafting, really matter.

The film opens with teenager Conor, »

Sing Street review: “Feels both nostalgic and fresh.”

15 May 2016 9:33 PM, PDT | The Hollywood News | See recent The Hollywood News news »

Sing Street review: John Carney heads to the mid-80s for his latest music inspired tale. Sing Street review

Ireland sure do love their music. From their Bonos to their Westlifes and their serious contendership in the Eurovision song contest. They may have not qualified for this year’s camp Euro festivities that us in the UK may vote ourselves out of next year come June, but Ireland have a much more successful musical offering hitting cinemas. John Carney completes his trilogy of music inspired films, following the acclaimed Once, and Begin Again. Once has transferred into a hit musical, although I was never a big fan of it to begin with. It was good, but I couldn’t hum any of the song’s, and felt it was a bit dry in places.

Sing Street feels both nostalgic and fresh at the same time, hitting us with healthy dollops »

Cannes Lunchtime: Content’s Jamie Carmichael

11 May 2016 10:00 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Jamie Carmichael is a seasoned Cannes visitor — “it will be my 25th year in a row,” he notes — and a veteran of the global film market. The Los Angeles-based exec will be on the Croisette with a lot of projects including action-thriller “The Worker,” produced by Jeremy Renner’s shingle The Combine, starring Michael Peña and directed by Dan Bradley, and the Manolo Blahnik documentary “Manolo.” “And we’ve got a very scary, supernatural horror movie, ‘Don’t Knock Twice,’ from ‘The Machine’ team starring Katee Sackhoff, Lucy Boynton and Nick Moran,” he adds.

Favorite restaurants

I love Le Caveau 30 and I always order the same meal. They have the best starter, the langoustine salad, and I make everyone have it, even if they don’t want it. Then it’s the steak au poivre and a half-glass of a good rosè. I’ve been going there for 25 years now and it’s always fantastic. »

Sing Street – Review

28 April 2016 8:22 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

The sweet, sweet smell of nostalgia wafts through the multiplex this weekend with the release of writer/director John (Once) Carney’s ode to the 1980’s. Really the later part of that decade when kids could switch over to the cable channel MTV and actually watch music videos of their favorite singers and bands (even stodgy old broadcast dinosaur NBC got on board for “Friday Night Videos” after Johnny Carson signed off). Aspiring rock stars sat down to the keyboard and the sketch/notepad to create a new sound and look that would send them to stardom, not just here in the states but all over the world. Even in a modest apartment, oops flat, in Dublin. This is the setting for a sweet, tuneful coming of age story that occurs on Sing Street.

To be exact, it starts in 1986, in Ireland.  A bright lad named Conor Aka Cosmo (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo »

Sing Street Review

24 April 2016 6:50 PM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

With a spring in his step, director John Carney again explores the relationship between man and music in Sing Street, an ‘80s-set ode to high school jam bands and their eternal pursuit of the opposite sex via after school song-smithing and carefully tousled hair. Once and Begin Again, Carney’s previous almost-musicals, were touching and enjoyable enough, but Sing Street is his most red-blooded artistic statement yet, with dynamic visuals that catch the eye as much as the new-wavey tunes catch the ear.

Carney’s gift is his ability to celebrate life’s disasters as much as its glories, and while Sing Street may be his most winsome, joyful effort yet, it isn’t shy about putting its hero through hard times. When we meet teenage Dubliner Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo), he’s strumming on his acoustic in an attempt to drown out the screaming match his mom (Maria Doyle Kennedy »

Movie Review – Sing Street (2016)

19 April 2016 6:20 AM, PDT | Flickeringmyth | See recent Flickeringmyth news »

Sing Street, 2016.

Written and Directed by John Carney.

Starring Lucy Boynton, Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Aidan Gillen, Jack Reynor, Percy Chamburuka, Mark McKenna, Kelly Thornton, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Ian Kenny, and Don Wycherley.

Synopsis:

A boy growing up in Dublin during the 1980s escapes his strained family life by starting a band and moving to London.

Here is how authentic Sing Street‘s (the latest film from writer/director John Carney) depiction of the highly stylized and glamorous 1980s pop rock music scene is: during the trailer for the movie, some original music is sampled, and I did not know it was actually a song created for the film. I just jumped the gun, assuming that the band of Dublin high school teenagers would be bringing us cover tunes, and that this sick jam blaring over a montage of plot points and other general trailer stuff was some licensed song from the »

Win Passes To The Advance Screening Of Sing Street In St. Louis

15 April 2016 12:23 PM, PDT | WeAreMovieGeeks.com | See recent WeAreMovieGeeks.com news »

Sing Street takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. There’s only one problem: he’s not part of a band…yet. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised – calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos. »

Sing Street Might Just Be the Most Joyous Movie of the Year

Music and joy. We could all use more of that, and Sing Street has it in abundance. The film from Once writer/director John Carney celebrates eighties music, loners, teen romance, big brothers and pretty much everything in between. Oh, and you will want the soundtrack. Newcomer Ferdia Walsh-Peelo stars as Connor, an Irish teen growing up in Dublin in the '80s. As his parents' marriage crumbles and bills mount, Connor is transferred from his posh school to a grotty Catholic school where the priests look on while students brawl.

John Carney has another musical delight to share with “Sing Street”

14 April 2016 5:52 AM, PDT | Hollywoodnews.com | See recent Hollywoodnews.com news »

I’m a big fan of what John Carney does when he mixes music with cinematic storytelling. He has an undeniable talent for taking songs and using them to tell a story, as you might have noticed. Once was our first example of this, with Begin Again being another winning one. Now, Carney is back this week with Sing Street, another indie musical romantic comedy/dramedy that is as good as he’s ever been. It’s a charming and delightful film, while also having a bit more on its mind than you might initially expect. It’s a winner for Carney and easily one of my favorite movies of 2016 so far. Oh, and you can probably pencil it in for an Oscar nomination (or possibly two) in the Best Original Song category. The film is, structurally speaking, sort of like a hybrid of Begin Again and Once. Set in 1980’s Dublin, »
