Conor's life is unsteady at best; with his family facing hard times, he has to move to an inner-city school and face a new social scene. Conor quickly falls in love with the mysterious Raphina and tries to impress her by boasting about his band...that doesn't exist yet.

WHAT ARE PEOPLE SAYING?

Melanie Greenberg Profile picture for Melanie Greenberg

So exuberant and joyful, you really feel Conor falling into his creative process. The music from this movie was the soundtrack to my junior year of high school.

Teddy Pierce Profile picture for Teddy Pierce

Such a fun movie filled with incredible music and an emotional core of family at its center. If you have a brother, either younger or older, this film will hit you like a punch straight to the gut—in the best possible way.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

Variety by Guy Lodge

The truest and most tearduct-tugging relationship here is that between Conor and his lank-haired college-dropout brother, played with spaced-out warmth and wistful good humor by the ever-likeable Reynor.

The Guardian by Jordan Hoffman

Did you like The Commitments? Did you like We Are the Best!!? Well, Sing Street isn’t as good as either of those two, but it’s still pretty terrific.

The Film Stage by Jordan Raup

While Sing Street is often infectious its its scraggly energy, one wishes Conor’s other band members were slightly more fleshed-out, which would make their already-absorbing performances sing even more.

The Playlist by Noel Murray

What makes Sing Street such a joyously entertaining film (besides the songs) is that it thinks the best of its characters, and it presents them the way they’d like to think of themselves.
