Sing Street (Film)

Monday 26th Dec, 7:00 pm

Sing St posterFrom director John Carney, Sing Street takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina, and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. There’s only one problem: he’s not part of a band…yet. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised – calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant music trends of the decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos. Sing Street shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater.

Hunt For The Wilderpeople (Film)

Sunday 1st Jan, 7:00 pm

WilderpeopleRaised on hip-hop and foster care, defiant city kid Ricky gets a fresh start in the New Zealand countryside. He quickly finds himself at home with his new foster family: the loving Aunt Bella, the cantankerous Uncle Hec, and dog Tupac. When a tragedy strikes that threatens to ship Ricky to another home, both he and Hec go on the run in the bush. As a national manhunt ensues, the newly branded outlaws must face their options: go out in a blaze of glory or overcome their differences and survive as a family. Equal parts road comedy and rousing adventure story, director Taika Waititi masterfully weaves lively humor with emotionally honest performances by Sam Neill and Julian Dennison. A hilarious, touching crowd-pleaser, Hunt for the Wilderpeople reminds us about the journey that growing up is (at any age) and those who help us along the way. Rating: PG Runtime: 101 minutes
