If you are wondering “How does she find these movies?!”, my answer to that is “By taking a chance and watching a whole lot of trailers!”
That is my favourite thing to do while surfing the web. Log on to YouTube and go click click click.
Sometimes, IMDB also serves as a good vehicle for my click click click venture. It also shows me links to related movies that I may, someday, like viewing.
If a movie features Adam Levine, then there are no two ways about it. I HAVE to watch it. Even if it is him only playback singing. Because, HELLO! ADAM LEVINE.
Yup, I am a big fan right here. Although I don’t remember the lyrics to any of his songs even if I have heard them all a million times! Neither do I know about all of his tattoos. I haven’t tried searching for my name in it. I swear on your head! My love is true and that is all I know.
SO what led me to this awesome movie that you MUST watch?
Adam, who else?
I was doing my usual listening to his songs on YouTube business, when I came across this new song. And paid attention to the description which read OST Sing Street. Hmmmmm….is he acting in this movie? Curious, curious!
So I checked out the trailer and VOILA! It was a movie that I just HAD to watch!!
It is a story based in the 80s’ in Dublin. Interestingly, I have watched the other movies by this director and they are pretty good too!
Before you watch this movie, brush up on your Irish. Or you may have to resort to sub-titles. I got a good ear on me. Actually a pair of them! So I had no issue.
This is a very sweet funny story of a teenager and how he plays the hand he is dealt with – in terms of his family which makes him go about getting what he wants, in spite of the odds being against him. And what he wanted was what any teenage boy wanted – to impress a girl. So he forms a Band! And this is the story about that journey. The songs are fun – from that era when everything was upbeat and loud – especially the hair and makeup. And you will be transported back in time.
As the story progresses, you see that the relationships are deeper than just a superficial crush. The understanding of children about their parents’ stuck in an unhappy marriage, the dusting of sibling rivalry which paled under the loyalty that they felt towards each other, school with atrocities like justified righteousness and bullying, friendships full of trust, breaking out of the mold, love, belief that anything is possible…all these things make the movie absolutely wonderful to watch.
I did not recognize any of the actors, except Little Finger (from Game of Thrones). It is a new crew and they have all done a great job! Each of them are so believable in the parts they play. There are some memorable quotes in the movie as well. I would love to share it over here. Although that would be a spoiler. Tell you what? We can swap a list of our favourite quotes later. Good plan? Thanks!
I would rate this movie with FOUR
and one more, for Adam!
Here’s the trailer:
And here is the song that got me to the movie.
It is a beautiful song <3
