The narratives were airtight, the characters were well-developed and the quality of the films were unparalleled for their time.

The film already lends itself to a realistic and lively tone in Carney’s decision to set his story in the 1980s.

Jack Reynor is another highlight in the film as Connor’s burnout older brother Brendan, whose story arc comes together in a very heartwarming way near the film’s close.

Without giving anything away, the ending scene in particular links back to an important piece of dialogue from one of the characters which caps the film off beautifully.

“Sing Street” is one of the rare films today that really does have the whole package.

For me, it’s undoubtedly the best film of the year so far, and it may be one of my favorite films, period.

“Sing Street” is a true gem, proving that our current decade still has some great films to give.
