SING STREET (M) Some boys, a girl, a band and a bond Ire­land, 106 min

Townsville Bulletin - Townsville Eye - - Flicks -

The sole point to this funny, en­gag­ing and wholly en­ter­tain­ing af­fair is that there is only one thing bet­ter than be­ing young and about to fall in love. And that is to be young and about to fall in love twice. Dublin teenager Conor (Fer­dia Walsh-Peelo), only has eyes for Raphina (Lucy Boyn­ton), an as­pir­ing fash­ion model. She isn’t re­turn­ing his gaze as yet, but a boy can dream, right? Just as im­por­tantly, Conor only has ears for mu­sic. It is the mid1980s, and the chance view­ing of a Du­ran Du­ran mu­sic video in­spires Conor to form a band ASAP. There is no venue to play at, and lit­tle chance any­one will hear his catchy com­po­si­tions, but a boy can keep on dream­ing, right? Too right. And get­ting it right is some­thing Sing Street ex­cels at through­out. Not only is this un­pol­ished gem guar­an­teed to move you. Just like ev­ery favourite song you’ve ever had, it will get you mov­ing as well. Writ­ten and di­rected by John Car­ney ( Once). Screens twice daily at War­rina.
