The influential TIME magazine named Sing Street and The Lobster in it's top choices which is a fantastic boost to both movies as well as the Irish film industry as a whole.
Sing Street, a musical set in Dublin in the 1980's, received critical acclaim. The film which was directed by John Carney has received an 8.3/10 rating on IMDB and an impressive 97% on Rotten Tomatoes. The inclusion in TIME's top ten can only do more wonders for the feel-good flick.
