This coming-of-age musical comedy has been hailed by critics as "a pitch perfect" reconstruction of Dublin teen life in the 1980s. With money tight in his strained family, Conor (Ferdia Walsh- Peelo) has to move from his private school to the Brothers in Synge Street where posh boys are easy prey for school bullies. Working on relationship advice and musical cues from his older brother (Jack Reynor), Conor forms a band to attract the mysterious and much older Raphina (Lucy Boynton) who he persuades to appear in a series of music videos.
