‘Sing Street’ will be given a limited release in the US on April 15th
The Weinstein Company has set a US release date for Irish film ‘Sing Street’, with the musical comedy drama handed a limited release from April 15th.

‘Sing Street’, written and directed by Carney (‘Once’, ‘Zonad’, ‘Begin Again’), made its’ world premiere at Sundance last month and received critical acclaim. The Guardian gave the film four stars and described the film as “pretty terrific” and a “cymbal-crashing crowdpleaser” with The Hollywood Reporter praising the film for its’ “infectious joyousness”. Noted US film critic Guy Lodge, writing for Variety, states that “lightning strikes thrice as Irish writer-director John Carney's let's-make-a-band formula once more yields winning results.”

The film, which opened ADIFF this week and is heading to SXSW next month, is about a boy growing up in Dublin during the 1980s who escapes his strained family life by starting a band and moving to London and stars newcomer Ferdia Walsh-Peelo alongside Lucy Boynton, Aidan Gillen, Maria Doyle Kennedy and Jack Reynor.

‘Sing Street’ was shot in locations in and around Dublin last autumn and wrapped in late October with post-production taking place in Screen Scene. Louise Kiely was the Casting Director.

The film will hit Irish cinemas on March 17th. Check out the trailer below:
