Sing Street – Review

8 hours ago | 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

15 April 2016 9:35 AM, PDT | PEOPLE.com | See recent PEOPLE.com news »

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, »

Sing Street Review

14 March 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

As he so wonderfully captured the world of a struggling musician busking on the streets of the capital in Once, so again has writer/director John Carney returned to Dublin, capturing the essence of what it is to be a teenager, slowly discovering their own identity and place in the world through the prism of music in his latest opus Sing Street.  Set in 1985 during the recession, the film follows fifteen-year-old Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) as he transfers from his private school to the tough inner city streets of the Synge Street Christian Brothers School. Upon meeting the beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton) he and his friends form a band in the hope that she’ll star in a music video for them, kicking off Conor’s journey to find himself through music and win the girl of his dreams. Gloriously transporting you back to a time when Top of The Pops »
