Broadsheet Trailer Park: Sing Street

at

Sing Street

What you may need to know:

1. John Carney’s new flick. A young fella starts up a band to impress a young wan.

2. Can we forget about Once (2007), now?

3. Contrary to popular opinion, it wasn’t all bad back in the eighties. Jazz mags, Toni the exotic dancer, and cheap Doc Martens ’round the back of the Ilac. Good times.

4. Say hello to ADIFF, wave goodbye to JDIFF. Sing Street is the opening film at the newly-named Dublin Film Festival.

5. Still waiting for the Bachelors Walk box set.

6. Broadsheet prognosis: Less About A Boy, more Good Vibrations.

Release Date: March 18.

      Agreed: the 80s were top-notch; a young shaver could get up to any amount of shenanigans and not have it documented on a cameraphone or social media. And the music? No’ bad.

        back in the day when an adult could buy a bag o cans for a teenager and if caught, the teenager gets the clip round the ear.
        good times.

        I believe you do, in fact I feel we’ve been here before many times, in circumstances which differed only very slightly in appearance and outcome.

          We must move forward, not backward, upward not forward, and always twirling, twirling, twirling towards freedom.

    Nah, you had Kevin Sharkey as well, Poor aul’ Philo might have succumbed by this point in the film’s timeline.

    Is that Simon Carmody of The Golden Horde with the story credit? Saw them I don’t know how many times back in the day.
    I like the look of this trailer. Could be a fun film.

    In fairness John Carney and Lenny A. are the only film makers in this country that have some idea of what they’re doing. This film probably won’t change your life but it’ll be nicely and professionally put together. Looking forward to seeing it.

        At the end of the film they have a street party on Synge Street and invite all their middle class lefty whitest Irish media friends. And then they dream about 2016.

        It’s based on a true story.

    ah now, that’s a late 2000’s pearl export drum kit. 80’s exports, while the best selling kit in the world, were horrible yokes made of chipboard and covered in a flat, one colour wrap.
    i simply can’t tolerate such anachronism and i shall be staging a protest outside my local cinema.
    hrrrmmph

    Jack Reynor is such an annoying actor, Fassbender and Ronan are in a different league to him.
    Some of the moments in that video are just so awful: who knows what this new prison will do for you and this is your time. And the worst moment: rock and roll is a risk. Nooooo. Don’t ever say that again, like that.
