Sing Street(2016)-Cinemaphile Review "Your problem is that you re not happy being sad"
Sing Street is a tale Of a teenage boy growing up in Dublin in the 80s and his journey of impressing a mysterious girl he likes.
15 year old Conor played by Ferdia lives in Dublin who has been forced to move from a posh school to a ruthless Christian school full of bullies due to unfavorable circumstances in his family.
And in the span of fitting in this new school he falls for this girl named Raphina, and then he starts a quest to make her fall in love with him by starting out a boy band with a hope that the band will impress her . The best phrase to define the movie's first segment is "Things we do for Love", but i really liked the way this movie gradually took a leap from just a teen romance to a musical in a very subtle way which made the movie hell lot better for Me . The movie had the perfect balance of Drama and Music.
Movie is very exclusive in nature centered on characters and reminds you of your youthful days when you are in high spirits, day dreaming and the will to do something iconic.
The one thing that impressed me the most was the realism in the movie (especially the case with the music) ,way the movie is written and how the boy band gets its inspiration from Other big artists and sort of get their own signature sound by widening their musical taste amd capabilities, thereby, increasing their skill in art of music, which many commercial movies fail to do and takes the audience on a journey that is totally unbelievable.
I also like the cuts and editing done in the movie, the soundtracks were amazing. Cinematography was decent but not something that blows you away.
I Just didn't like one thing in the movie that was the casting of conor's dad, Aiden was not fit to play the role of Robert in the movie. He was barely for 5mins on screen but i didn't like him playing the role He was given Nevermind, on a positive note I Loved the role Of Raphina played by American Actress Lucy
Other than that i thoroughly enjoyed this movie . It carries a lot Of positive energy along with it and makes the audience to think big and be bold.
Cinemaphile score - 8/10
