Watch This

I want to take a minute to recommend a movie that I loved.  I'm not going to go on and on about it except to say that if you have any memories of being a young person in the 1980s and/or love the music of that era, this is it: Sing Street, directed by John Carney whose previous excellent movie was Once. It is well played mostly by young people you've never heard of, with a special shout-out to Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, who portrays the main character and sings the original songs beautifully. It is available for streaming now, and on Blu-ray next week.

Once was Carny's first movie, Begin Again with Keira Knightley and Mark Ruffalo his second. Sing Street is his third. I highly recommend Begin Again as well as Sing Street. - Ian
