Dublin, mid 1980s. 14-year-old Conor is transferred from a posh private school to the local comprehensive – a hostile territory of bullies and priests.

In a bid to impress a girl and make friends, Conor rounds up a gang of lads to form a band. Under his older brother’s guidance, they distill the likes of Duran Duran and The Jam into their music. 

Imbued with popular 80s hits, Sing Street is an intoxicatingly enjoyable experience. Director Carney (Once) pulls strong performances from the young cast, expertly balancing drama and comedy.

Love & Friendship column 200

The beautiful, beguiling and recently widowed Lady Susan Vernon is the subject of scandalous rumours. Setting out to find a new suitor, she attracts the attention of the young and married Reginald DeCourcy (Samuel).

She also guile-fully attempts to persuade Sir James Martin (Bennett), an amiable simpleton, to pursue her un-receptive daughter.

As Lady Susan pursues the controversial relationship with Reginald, seduction, deception and heartbreak ensue.

Beckinsale is the main attraction as the fiendishly manipulative heroine, delivering hilariously cutting lines with brazen verve.
