Comedy, Coming of Age, Musicals
In 1980s Dublin, 15-year-old Conor’s guitar is his way of dealing with most things- from blocking out the noise of his parents arguing, to finding new friends at his rough new school, to impressing a mysterious older girl he’s noticed at the school gates. When Conor persuades the beautiful Raphina to be in a music video, he’s under pressure to actually form a band. With a motley crew of his new classmates he forms ‘Sing Street’- a band that is heavily influenced in sound and image by all the latest hits, from the New Romantics to Depeche Mode. A joyous and very funny coming-of-age tale that deals with serious issues while remaining defiantly optimistic.
A film guide that looks at Sing Street (2016), exploring its key topics and themes through informal discussion.
Activities to support engagement, debate and reflection for titles within the Visions of Europe strand of the Into Film Festival.
