A Weinstein Company Release
April 15, 2016
Like his earlier films ONCE and BEGIN AGAIN, SING STREET is inspired by writer/director John Carney’s life and love for music, and tells the story of a 14-year-old named Cosmo growing up in 80’s Dublin who must break free of a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, deal with his drop-out older brother’s antics, and survive a new public school where the kids are rough and the brothers are tougher.
Cosmo writes a song, forms a scrappy band with some school mates, writes more songs, and shoots some wicked music videos. How to shoot pop videos in a recession ridden country? Beg, borrow and steal. And steal.
But when he realizes he can’t save his family, he must make a family of his own.
Director/Writer: John Carney
Producers: Anthony Bregman (Likely Story), Kevin Frakes (PalmStar Media Capital), Raj Brinder Singh (Merced Media Partners), Paul Trijbits (FilmWave), John Carney (Distressed Films)
