Jimmy Rabbitte, just a tick out of school, gets a brilliant idea: to put a soul band together in Barrytown, his slum home in north Dublin. First he needs musicians and singers: things slowly start to click when he finds three fine-voiced females virtually in his back yard, a lead singer (Deco) at a wedding, and, responding to his ad, an aging trumpet player, Joey "The Lips" Fagan.
This well rounded sampling offers a full range of narrative, music driven movies. Classics Purple Rain and The Blues Brothers share the stage with bio pics like Walk the Line and indie favorite Once. For music in film lovers.
