Sing Street

15 year old newcomer, Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, leads the cast in Sing Street, the third music-themed feature film from director John Carney, who's previous films include Once and Begin Again.

Talented singer Ferdia, from Wicklow, who has his own band in reality, stars as 14 year old musician Cosmo.

Sing Street has been described as ‘a semi-autobiographical tale inspired by the filmmaker’s love of music’. Set in 1980s recession-ridden Dublin, it tells the story of a fourteen year old named Cosmo who finds life at home difficult. He decides to form a band with school mates, whom he writes songs and shoots videos with. When family trouble strikes, he runs away to London with his fifteen year old girlfriend who aspires to be a model.


20 year old Lucy Boynton (represented by United Agents), who previously starred in the BBC's Ballet Shoes and more recently Canal+'s The Borgias co-stars as Raphina, his girlfriend.


Sing Street also stars Aidan Gillen and Maria Doyle Kennedy as Cosmo's parents and Jack Reynor as his older brother.

Production has just wrapped in Dublin.
