SING STREET

The Irish Times - Friday - The Ticket - - SEVEN DAYS | FILM - TB

Di­rected by John Car­ney. Star­ring Fer­dia Walsh-Peelo, Lucy Boyn­ton, Jack Reynor, Ai­dan Gillen Mid­dle-class Cosmo (Walsh-Peelo) is sent to the rowdy Synge Street CBS when his be­liev­ably louche pro­fes­sional dad (Gillen in hooded-eyed mode) finds clients slip­ping away. He finds es­cape through mu­sic. Con­clud­ing what feels, af­ter Car­ney’s Once and Be­gin Again, like a mu­si­cal tril­ogy, Sing Street trades in a sim­i­lar sort of height­ened re­al­ity to that which en­er­gised Stan­ley Do­nen’s post-war mu­si­cals. Walsh-Peelo is great. The mu­sic soars. A de­light. 12A cert, gen re­lease, 105 min
