In the forests of the Pacific Northwest, a father devoted to raising his six kids with a rigorous physical and intellectual education is forced to leave his paradise and enter the world, challenging his idea of what it means to be a parent.
This is the mid eighties and everybody is moving to the beat of Pop music as the brand-new concept of music videos appears on television for the first time. On the other hand, in Dublin, Conor, a teenager with a sensitive heart, is trying to deal with a tense family relationship, reconnect with his older brother, and deal with the hostile environment of his new public school - but then, one day, he sees her - tall, with long chestnut hair, a buttery complexion and big, blue eyes - an enigmatically beautiful girl standing in front of the gate of his school indolently observing people passing by. Who is she and how could a boy ever get noticed by such a distant girl? Easy. He would form a band. With every lyric Conor writes, the gap narrows, and with every song he plays, her heart fills with affection. In a sea of opportunities ahead of them, what does the future hold for a love like this?

I didn't expect such a good movie to be honest. The plot sounded interesting but when you watch the movie you get hooked in about 10 minutes. The characters are incredible with their own personality ( i really liked main characters brother , his story was great). The soundtrack was...oh man...it was incredible and a great addition to the movie.
I believe that this is in my top 3 movies of the year so far and that's why everyone should give it a watch. Trust me you will not be disappointed at all. Its an amazing movie for all ages.
Also the acting is great and the 80s of course give the movie a nostalgic and beautiful tone
