Coming of Ages Stories

October 16, 2016 at 7:00 PM

Two things I love: coming of age stories and musicals. Put them together, and I'm a captive audience. One of the best coming-of-age movies I've seen in a while was just released on DVD, and is now available at the library. Sing Street tells the story of Conor, a teenager growing up in 1980's Dublin. His home life isn't great, he just started a new school, and he's crushing on a neighbor. To impress her, he invites her to be in his band's music video. Except Conor has no band. Yet. What follows is a delightful story about a boy and his music. This one will make you smile, plus the music is so fun and so 80's. And if you like it, be sure to check out another of this filmmaker's works, and my absolute favorite, Once. --Jen Barth, Pop-Culture Librarian
