Synopsis:

Like his earlier films ONCE and BEGIN AGAIN, SING STREET is inspired by writer/director John Carney’s life and love for music. It tells the story of a 14-year-old named Cosmo growing up in 80’s Dublin, who must break free of a home strained by his parents’ relationship, deal with his drop-out older brother’s antics, and survive a new public school where the kids are rough and the brothers are tougher. Cosmo forms a scrappy band with some school mates, writes songs, and shoots music videos. And when he realises he can’t save his family, he must decide he must make a family of his own.
