Sing Street

Sing Street ★★★½

I've cooled on Sing Street a little in the month or so since viewing, its imperfections standing out in the cool light of day. But it's still the finest Irish film I've seen in years, with genuine humour and an uncynical heart. And maybe best of all, for what's essentially a musical (though the tunes are mostly diagetic) it doesn't let the songs get in the way of its '80s twist on The Commitments, one that comes with less rough but more cutting edges.
