I recently had the pleasure of watching Sing Street, a movie that follows the creative pursuits of struggling teenager Conor as he starts a band to impress a girl. Anyone been there?! While I’m not one to regularly watch musicals, I love, love, love movies about resourceful kids who do amazing things despite their difficult circumstances. Combine that element with an ’80s setting, and things really start to get good. By the first musical performance, I was all in! Today Mirror80 is partnering with Anchor Bay Entertainment to offer one lucky winner a copy of Sing Street on DVD, plus a $100 Sephora gift card (so you can add some ’80s flair to your makeup bag)! Keep reading for details on how to enter the giveaway…
Sing Street is now on Blu-ray™, DVD, Digital HD & On Demand. This feel-good, coming of age story written and directed by John Carney (Once, Begin Again) features the ultimate soundtrack of the ’80s. In fact, Carney was the bassist of Irish band The Frames in the early ’90s. Who better to oversee a movie about a group of lads starting a band in Dublin?!
The film has an amazing look, from the interiors (authentic and real, like the home in the video for “Our House” by Madness) to the fabulous fashion. And let’s not forget the makeup! At the top of the post, we see a photo of Lucy Boynton, who plays Raphina in the film. Scroll down for a series of stills that celebrate the movie’s various takes on ’80s fashion, including the way the band changes up their style as they’re influenced by different bands of the 1980s:
As you watch Sing Street, you get to hear plenty of original music from the ’80s, including tracks from Duran Duran, The Cure and Hall & Oates. In fact, one of my favorite scenes involves lead character Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) and his family watching and commenting on Duran Duran’s 1982 video for “Rio”. But you also get to witness how these songs influence Conor and the band as they create their own music. Check out the trailer for Sing Street:[youtube id=”wDKyK6zGkSc” align=”center” maxwidth=”700″]
