Thoughts on every movie I've ever seen.

Sing Street (2016)

Directed by John Carney

Starring Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Kelly Thornton, Maria Doyle Kennedy, Jack Reynor


Cute and charming, pulling some of the same strings as Almost Famous. Carney did a great job capturing the 80’s authentically and making fun of it at the same time.

Actors are all great. Walsh-Peelo pulls off a great first performance as the lead, and there’s something really appealing about McKenna. Reynor is an appealing mix of Seth Rogen and Jason Lee. Lucy Boynton, what a catch. Only familiar face is Aidan Gillen, and he’s pretty good.

Great original music, maybe a little too great for these kids. Some good comedy in there. Well-paced and edited.
