Sing Street (Ireland|UK) 105 min.

Reeling from Dublin’s 80s recession, Conor’s parents move him from a private school to a rough inner-city public school where the scrappy 14-year-old forms a band. Mentored by his older brother, a dropout who’s hip to cool tunes, Conor starts to compose lyrics. Renaming himself Cosmo, he convinces the mysterious über-cool Raphina to star in their music videos and wins her heart in the process.
