I never thought I would do this some day, but in my review for John Carney's previous film, Begin Again, replace "Dublin" for "New York City". Mostly, the same review applies. So even though Sing Street is off to a very good start, a sense of repeating the director's profile again and again severely bogs it down, and in my book ends it up with a NoMo. The critics who've given this a mind-blowing 97%, probably haven't seen the director's other films.
