It’s 1980s Dublin, an economic recession forces Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) out of comfortable private school and into survival mode at the inner-city public school. He finds a glimmer of sunshine in the mysterious and über-cool Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. Renaming himself “Cosmo”, he becomes immersed in the vibrant rock music trends of the ‘80s, as he forms a band dedicated to pouring their hearts into writing lyrics and shooting videos.
From the acclaimed director of ‘Once’, John Carney’s (Begin Again, Once) trademark warmth and humour shines through with a punk rock edge, and a memorable soundtrack with original songs and hits from The Cure, Duran Duran, The Police, and Genesis. SING STREET is an electrifying coming-of-age film that will resonate with music fans everywhere.
