Sing Street (2016) Review | 100 Day Film Challenge – Day 30

 Sing Street was so sweet that I wanted to cry. Directed by John Carney (Once, Begin Again), the film follows Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo), a boy who forms a band to impress Raphina (Lucy Boynton),the girl he has a crush on.

The acting is superb, and I the chemistry between Conor and Raphina is adorable. It gave me all the warm, fuzzy feelings seeing them together, and it tore my heart apart when Raphina ignored Conor.

As with Carney’s previous work, Sing Street conveys the message of how powerful music is and how it brings us together. The soundtrack is superb, and the wonderful effects it has on Conor is astounding.

I loved seeing Aidan Gillen and Maria Doyle Kennedy as Conor’s parents (I’m a huge fan of Game of Thrones and Orphan Black, respectively) and Jack Reynor was dreamy as Conor’s older brother.

The cinematography was stunning, and I wanted to dive into my screen to visit the beautiful locales. The shots were all beautiful, and I would seriously frame every one of them.

Some may find this movie slow or dull, but if you enjoy warmhearted films that explore first love and the power of music, definitely watch Sing Street ASAP.

Verdict: 4/5

  1. The trailer looks interesting. I hadn’t heard of this one before but I liked Begin Again so will definitely be checking it out. I like that you’re doing a 100 Day Film Challenge. Seems like a big project but also a very good idea. I’ve got so many movies I still want to see but when I finally have time I just end up doing other stuff. Maybe I should give it a go too haha. Nice blog btw. I wanted to ask if you’d be keen on sharing your thoughts and opinions on Moviepilot/Creators. Feel free to shoot me an e-mail for more info, you can find my contact details on my blog. Would love to hear from you.
