Sing Street :- Watch Sing Street on Youtube on Fire,A boy growing up in Dublin during the 1980s escapes his strained family life by starting a band and moving to London.At the beginning of the movie, it is shown that it is 1985. The family gathers to watch Top of the Pops (as most all did in those days!). They showed the video for Duran Duran’s “Rio” and the elder brother was talking about them like they were brand new. “Rio” came out in 1982..it wouldn’t have been on TOTP in 1985. Duran were already massive and household names by 1985.SING STREET is a heartfelt, funny and artful coming-of-age movie set in 1985 Dublin. I’m close to an ideal audience member for this film, because I grew up in the 80s myself, a child of the MTV Generation. I count John Hughes’ films and the Cameron-Crowe scripted Fast Times At Ridgemont High among the most influential films of my childhood. They are the reason I became a screenwriter, and why I continue to write movies for a teen audience.Sing Street truly hearkens back to those great teen movies of the 80s. The best stories about teenagers are rooted in pain and isolation, and this is no different – Connor “Cosmo” Lawler comes from an upper middle class family that has fallen on hard times. His parents have constant fights. His older brother Brendan is a college dropout and his sister, the ‘smart one,’ pretty much keeps to herself. In order for the family to save money, Connor is transferred to the local Catholic boys school, where he’s quickly made an outcast and an example by the authoritarian headmaster.
