NO POPCORN #007 | Sing Street

NO ENCORE returns with another deep dive into the world of cinema as powered by a musical theme.

Dave Hanratty and David Higgins are joined by Norma Howard, who knows a thing or three about all things film, as they do an Irish movie for once by focusing on 1980s kitchen sink drama but also colourful fantasy musical Sing Street

Is Sing Street a strong depiction of recession-era Dublin? Are the songs any use? How about the casting? And Jack Reynor’s accent, for that matter? What the hell is with that ending? And just how smoothly did director John Carney handle the press tour for this one?
