Sing Street Movie DVD Release + Giveaway

Sing Street is the best coming of age movie out of the last, I don’t know how many years, with a 1980’s soundtrack to knock your socks off. From writer/director John Carney’s (ONCE, BEGIN AGAIN) the movie is filled Duran Duran, a-Ha, The Cure, plus a huge helping of the fictional newbie Irish teen band, Sing Street.  Let’s discuss.

// This post is in partnership with Anchor Bay Entertainment.  Thank you for always being so gracious to Petit Elefant sponsors. // 

sing street movieI’m maybe one of the biggest U2 fans on the planet, so Sing Street, the sweet, touching, funny story of a bunch of teenagers set in the mid-1980’s in Dublin discovering their musical talent together felt like a delightful U2 biography. I mean that in the best way possible.

sing street DVDThe pack of musical prodigies is led by Conor, a soulful 14-year-old struggling with a transfer to a rough new Catholic school and a houseful of screaming parents, on a mission to form a band to impress the foxy, sophisticated wanna be model, Raphina.  In the process, Conor finds a handful of wicked talented friends and an escape, both from his current surroundings and a dead end future in tenement Dublin housing.  The story is genuinely sweet, and watching the band’s sound and personality evolve as they move through their newfound idols from the vast musical library of Conor’s brother, completely delightful. I loved every minute and can’t wait to download the soundtrack.
