Sing Street is a 2016 comedy-drama written and directed by John Carney, who also wrote and directed the musical romance Once (starring singer/songwriters Glen Hansard and Markéta Irglovà) and Begin Again (about musicians played by Keira Knightley, Mark Ruffalo, and Adam Levine). Also a story about music and musicians, this time young teens hoping to form a band, Sing Street is set in mid-'80s Dublin, Ireland and features a soundtrack of MTV favorites from the era mixed with faux '80s originals by the fictional Sing Street band. The new songs were written by a team led by Carney and songwriter/film composer Gary Clark. Licensed songs include hits from the Cure, the Jam, Duran Duran, Joe Jackson, and more, for nearly an hour of new wave goodness. Eyeliner and hair gel sold separately. ~ Marcy Donelson
