Sing Street — Brightens your day and elevates your heart in a real way — 9*/10

  • Story: It's all about getting the girl and music. No scene is wasted. Each and everyone of them has meaning. They feel real. You'd want to be part of them and go along with them.
  • Style: It's incredibly sweet, but not sugary. It's a sweetness that brightens your day and elevates your heart. It's a bit sentimental, a bit funny, and totally genuine.
  • Ending: Excellent.
  • Dialogs: Sweet, thoughtful and sometimes witty or funny.
  • Characters: Perfect. You have a nice depth to the main characters, and the supporting ones do not feel empty of unidimensional. They don't follow the usual lines or they don't stay there. The interactions between the two brothers is particularly powerful.
  • Acting: Right on the dot. Can't ask for more.
  • Costumes: Great. Thoughtfully done.
  • Music: Excellent, especially the new songs. You definitively have the 80's vibe, but it's not full glam, cheap or kitch.
  • Synopsis & information
  • Entertainment value: Very!
  • Who is it for? Everyone, unless you can't stand a bit of the 80's.

I'm convinced we'll hear again from these actors and the director/writer.
