In two weeks the UK gets their chance to fall in love with John Carney’s latest film, Sing Street.
Following his crowd-pleasing Once and Begin Again, Sing Street is a love song to the 80s, with Carney’s unshakeable knack for bringing out the magical power of music to light up city streets and the people they hold.
We’ve got two new clips and a host of images from the film to share this afternoon, the film is out on the 20th of May so get your singing trousers on…
SING STREET takes us back to 1980s Dublin where an economic recession forces Conor 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. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious and über-cool Raphina, and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. 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 ‘80s, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their hearts into writing lyrics and shooting videos. Combining Carney’s trademark warmth and humor with a punk rock edge, and featuring a memorable soundtrack with 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 across the board.
