One Mr. Adam Kempenaar of the Filmspotting podcast loves this truly and deeply, so much so that he gets mad whenever anyone doesn’t love it as much as him. He needn’t worry about me, I loved this all the way through every change of persona the band made as they were trying on different music styles. There wasn’t as much female-forward stuff as in Carney’s Begin Again, but it was delightful and with some great performances.*
Cost: Free from library
Where watched: at home, while painting toenails purple.
*Ferdia Walsh-Peelo carried the film as Conner, and I also enjoyed Mark McKenna as the multi-talented Eamon and Ben Carolan as the manager. Plus, Jack Reynor continued the charismatic streak he started in A Royal Night Out.
