It's Dublin, 1985. Conor (newcomer Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) escapes his strained family life by starting a band to impress the mysterious girl he likes. To everyone's surprise - including Conor himself - the band is actually kinda good... Good enough, perhaps, for Conor to dare to dream big.

Featuring a funky mix of 1980s hits from the likes of Duran Duran, Motörhead, Hall & Oates and The Cure, as well as a cracking original album by the eponymous band, Sing Street is a brilliant, toe-tapping sensation certified FRESH on RottenTomatoes with a whopping 96%!

A delightful coming-of-age tale that both celebrates young love and laments how quickly the fire of youth can be snuffed out.

One of the year’s top 10 movies. Bonus points for including the best line of 2016: “No woman can truly love a man who listens to Phil Collins.”

Like a great pop song, this film is over much too soon.
