Fall International Film Series: Sing Street
Olin B Lecture Hall

The Fall International Film Series begins with the Irish comedy and drama, "Sing Street."

From director John Carney, "Sing Street" takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents' relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band's music videos. There's only one problem: he's not part of a band...yet. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he's promised - calling himself "Cosmo" and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos. Inspired by writer/director John Carney's life and love for music, "Sing Street" shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater. 

The film is free and open to the public and will be held in Olin B Lecture Hall inside the Olin Hall of Science. This film is rated PG-13.
