Anyone who has dreamed about starting a rock ‘n roll band will love this infectious coming-of-age story that cements director John Carney (“Once,” “Begin Again”) as the John Hughes of the Emerald Isle. After a family financial crisis, sweetly smitten Dublin teenager Connor tries to survive a rough new public school and win the heart of the cute girl in denim by starting his own New Wave band. It’s hard not to stand up and dance to the film’s exhilaratingly effervescent, high-energy soundtrack peppered with real 1980s hits and catchy original tunes inspired by the likes of The Cure and Duran Duran. “Sing Street” will make you feel like you’re young and in love and aspiring to greatness, and like one awesome song really could change your life. Brimming with romance, humor, and fun, movies just don’t get much more endearing and enjoyable than this. .
