Movie Review: “Sing Street”

   Sing Street
   Rated PG-13

Set in the mid-1980’s in Dublin, Ireland, 15-year old Connor’s life is falling apart.  Due to financial concerns, Connor is forced to attend a new school with a bully headmaster and his parents are considering divorce.  To escape his life and to impress a mysterious girl, he forms a band and transforms his life.

Anyone who is a fan of 1980’s music will love Sing Street.  This movie has old favorites and new compositions in the “new wave’ style.  The story is sweet and funny, but also provides a valuable social commentary on Dublin life during that time period.   Sing Street is a must-see!
