CLOSING NIGHT
Sing Street
Set in 1980s Dublin, the new film from John Carney (Once) follows 14-year-old Cosmo as he deals with being the new kid in school while trying to ignore mounting discord at home. A fledgling musician, he forms a band, starts writing songs and making DIY videos, and takes a swift turn toward a future full of possibility alongside a lively crew of collaborators.
ROCK ON!
