I wanted to see this film when it was in theaters, but not bad enough to travel as far as I would have needed to in order to see this film. Regardless, I bought and watched it as soon as I possibly could when it came out on digital, and I found that I absolutely loved it.
This film has probably become one of my favorite coming-of-age movies of all time. It's that good. The characters are extremely well-developed, especially the protagonist and his brother. Watching the film, I was enthralled in the story and became extremely attached to the characters. Carney does a good job of creating relatable characters, and the casting is perfect, both in terms of voice and acting abilities. The film had a good balance of comedic and heartfelt moments, making for a thoroughly enjoyable film-viewing experience.
The soundtrack of the film was phenomenal. It contains so much great 80's music, but that isn't even the best part; the music of the eponymous band is. Their music is extremely catchy and thoughtful, and serves as a great homage to the era. I actually plan on listening to the soundtrack quite often now. The cinematography of the film is also exceptional, with my favorite including that of the music videos, which contain some very interesting shots for the medium.
So overall, I really love "Sing Street". It is one of my favorite movies of the year, and even one of my favorite coming-of-age movies of all time. I highly recommend it if you get the chance to see it.
