Charming and sweet, never saccharine...an Irish teen inspired by the new wave movement circa mid-80's starts a band to impress a girl, then they have to learn to play!
Movies like this are hard to pull off, inevitably the music needs to feel authentic to the time, but not polished...these kids are just learning. The film succeeds and gives a really wonderful glimpse of the creative process making music. Seriously, you want to cheer these kids on and pump your fist in the air!
This is easily a favorite of 2016!
