Irish director John Carney hit the big time with Once and ended up making a film with Mark Ruffalo and Kiera Knightly called Begin Again last year. Now he's back in Ireland and cooking up a new drama called Sing Street. And you could not only be one of the first people in the world to see it but your opinion could shape the final product.
The show is set in Dublin in the 1980s where an economic recession forces Conor out of private school and into survival mode at the inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious and über-cool Raphina, and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. 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 ‘80s, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their hearts into writing lyrics and shooting videos. Combining Carney’s trademark warmth and humor with a punk rock edge, and featuring a memorable soundtrack with hits from The Cure, Duran Duran, The Police, and Genesis, SING STREET is an electrifying coming-of-age film that will resonate with music fans across the board.
Starring Jack Reynor, Aiden Gillen and Maria Doyle Kennedy, Sing Street promises to be another charming production from John Carney, and you can see it first!
The special screening will take place at the Savoy Cinema in Dublin on the 13th of May 2015 at 6.30pm sharp. Tickets are free but limited and will be allocated on a first come first served basis.
