John Carney’s IFTA nominated new film Sing Street opens in cinemas nationwide this weekend!
The nostalgic musical, written and directed by Carney, takes us back to 1980s Dublin where the recession forces 14-year-old Cosmo out of his comfortable private school and into survival mode at the inner-city public school, where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. There, he turns to music and forms a ragtag band, shooting scrappy music videos, and finding refuge and love with the beautiful 16-year-old Raphina. Check out the trailer below:
