Audiences everywhere will be dancing in the streets when Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company release the universally praised film, 'SING STREET' on Blu-ray™ and DVD July 26, 2016 from Anchor Bay Entertainment and available on Digital HD and On Demand from Starz Digital July 26, 2016.
From celebrated director and writer John Carney (Begin Again, Once), the film features a stellar cast with Lucy Boynton (Miss Potter), Maria Doyle Kennedy (“Orphan Black”), Aidan Gillen (“Game of Thrones”), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did) and newcomers Kelly Thornton and Ferdia Walsh-Peelo. The Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh film is “funny, charming, poignant,” according to Katie Walsh at the Los Angeles Times.
'SING STREET' marches to the beat of an eighties drummer with the music and influence of The Clash, A-Ha, The Cure, Duran, Genesis, Spandau Ballet, The Jam, Motorhead and more. Also included in the film is an original emotional ballad “Go Now” penned by Maroon 5’s frontman Adam Levine.
'SING STREET' takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher.
He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. There’s only one problem: he’s not part of a band…yet. 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 decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos.
