‘Sing Street’ Directed by John Carney

Sing Street 230x240-3

Trailer for Irish Film

The trailer for Sing Street, the new feature from writer and director John Carney (Once, Begin Again), has been released online by Lionsgate Films.

Sing Street takes us back to 1980s Dublin where an economic recession forces Conor out of his comfortable private school and into survival mode at the inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious and über-cool Raphina, and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised – calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the ‘80s, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their hearts into writing lyrics and shooting videos.

The film stars Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Lucy Boynton, Jack Reynor (Glassland), Maria Doyle Kennedy (Orphan Black) and Aidan Gillen (Game of Thrones).

Sing Street will have its world premiere this Sunday at the Sundance Film Festival. It will open the Audi Dublin International Film Festival on February 18th and will be released in Irish cinemas on March 18th.

Producers on Sing Street were Martina Niland, Anthony Bregman, Paul Trijbits, Christian Grass and John Carney and the production companies were Cosmo Films, Likely Story and Filmwave.
