Sing Street, 2016 - ★★★★

John Carney knows how to make music come alive on the screen. There are multiple moments where songs just come alive with a visual flair illustrating what makes them sound so good. He did it in Begin Again and that's pretty much all that happens in Once. Sing Street is closer to Begin Again (a film I liked a lot more than others) than Once but also has similarities to something like We Are The Best. Unfortunately I had the same problem as I had with Begin Again in that I personally didn't like the songs enough to be completely swept away but the fact that I still understood the sentiment warmed by heart and made me smile and cry in a happy sad sort of way.
