SING STREET

Arriving on Blu-ray™, DVD, On Demand, and on Digital HD July 26, 2016

Unknown

BEVERLY HILLS, CA (June 14, 2016) – Audiences everywhere will be dancing in the streets when Anchor Bay Entertainment and The Weinstein Company release the universally praised film, SING STREET on Blu-ray™ and DVD July 26, 2016 from Anchor Bay Entertainment and available on Digital HD and On Demand from Starz Digital July 26, 2016.

From celebrated director and writer John Carney (Begin Again, Once), the film features a stellar cast with Lucy Boynton (Miss Potter), Maria Doyle Kennedy (“Orphan Black”), Aidan Gillen (“Game of Thrones”), Jack Reynor (What Richard Did) and newcomers Kelly Thornton and Ferdia Walsh-Peelo. The Rotten Tomatoes Certified Fresh film is “funny, charming, poignant,” according to Katie Walsh at the Los Angeles Times.

SING STREET marches to the beat of an eighties drummer with the music and influence of The Clash, A-Ha, The Cure, Duran, Genesis, Spandau Ballet, The Jam, Motorhead and more. Also included in the film is an original emotional ballad “Go Now” penned by Maroon 5’s frontman Adam Levine.

SING STREET takes us back to 1980s Dublin seen through the eyes of a 14-year-old boy named Conor (Ferdia Walsh-Peelo) who is looking for a break from a home strained by his parents’ relationship and money troubles, while trying to adjust to his new inner-city public school where the kids are rough and the teachers are rougher. He finds a glimmer of hope in the mysterious, über-cool and beautiful Raphina (Lucy Boynton), and with the aim of winning her heart he invites her to star in his band’s music videos. There’s only one problem: he’s not part of a band…yet. She agrees, and now Conor must deliver what he’s promised – calling himself “Cosmo” and immersing himself in the vibrant rock music trends of the decade, he forms a band with a few lads, and the group pours their heart into writing lyrics and shooting videos.

Inspired by writer/director John Carney’s life and love for music, SING STREET shows us a world where music has the power to take us away from the turmoil of everyday life and transform us into something greater. SING STREET is “an irresistible, feel-good movie”, Leonard Maltin.

SING STREET is rated PG-13. Runtime is 106 minutes. The Blu-ray and DVD bonus content includes Making Sing Street, Writer/Director John Carney and Adam Levine Talk Sing Street and nine cast auditions.

“I hope a lot of Americans see this film — for the warning it offers…”

“Both a political thriller and a work of conscience.”

New York, NY — May 23, 2016 — Kino Lorber is proud to announce the Blu-ray and DVD release of RABIN, THE LAST DAY, the latest film from award-winning Israeli director Amos Gitai (Kippur, Yom Yom). Delving deep into the circumstances surrounding the assassination of Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin in 1995, Gitai paints an unflinching portrait of his home country, managing to blend the tension of a political thriller with a documentary feel by integrating archival footage to the narrative.

RABIN, THE LAST DAY was released theatrically by Kino Lorber earlier this year, opening at New York’s Lincoln Plaza Cinema in January before moving on to engagements in key national markets including Los Angeles, Miami, Cleveland, Minneapolis, and Washington DC, among others. The film was an Official Selection of the Toronto International Film Festival, won the Golden Mouse and Human Rights Nights Awards at the Venice Film Festival, and also won the Special Jury Award at the Seville European Film Festival.

Synopsis:
On the evening of Saturday, November 4th, 1995, Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated with three bullets at the end of a political rally in the center of Tel-Aviv. His killer, apprehended at the scene, was a 25-year-old student (and observant Jew). The following investigation reveals a frightening world that made this killing possible: a subculture of hate fueled by hysterical rhetoric, paranoia and political intrigue.

In RABIN, THE LAST DAY, acclaimed filmmaker Amos Gitai (Kadosh) masterfully combines staged re-enactments with actual news footage of the shooting (and its aftermath) to create a thought-provoking political thriller with ongoing relevance today.
