John Carney directs Ferdia Walsh- Peelo, Lucy Boynton and Jack Reynor in this 1980s set musical romance about a Dublin school lad who starts a New Wave band to impress a girl from the local home.
Yep – really charming and fun this. Full of on-the-nose humour, sensitive grit and triumphant moments you can’t help but be won over. The making of the ramshackle music videos are out of this world exercises in both parody and affectionate amateurish child’s play. The kind of warm hearted film that has room to give even the most sidelined character their scene to ring true, Grand stuff, so it is.
