SING STREET [2016]

Director John Carney's bittersweet musical-comedy, Sing Street, is the type of absolute delight that leaves a happy lump in your throat.
Influenced by his older brother, a young Irish boy, growing up on hard times in the '80's, starts a band to catch the attention of a girl he likes.
Packed with undeniable charm, great music and grounded humor, the film still manages to tackle a harsh realism that is always present but never weighs in heavy enough to get too gloomy.  It's the type of coming-of-age story tha speaks a different language to everyone all based upon your experience.
It ain't reinventing the wheel by any means but it's so irresistibly funny and heart-warming you'd have to have a heart of stone to not enjoy it.
