“The Commitments”

(One of my favorite movies I’m going to watch again today.) Great music, comedy and absolutely worth a look.

“Jimmy Rabbitte (Robert Arkins), a self-proclaimed promoter, decides to organize an R&B group to fill the musical void in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland. The band comes together but ends up consisting entirely of white musicians who have little experience with the genre. Even though their raw talent and lofty aspirations gain the group notoriety, the pitfalls of fame began to tear at their newfound friendships as they prepare for their big show. Based on the novel by Roddy Doyle.” From https://consequence.net:

“You know, The Commitments? Managed by the great Jimmy Rabbitte? Hacksaw sounds and vicious vocals from lead singer Deco Cuffe? Background vocals from Imelda Quirke, Bernie McGloughlin, and Natalie Murphy? The Commitmentettes? Drums by Billy Mooney, wait no, Mickah Wallace? The band’s security guard, before he took the drums? And the great Joey “The Lips” Fagan on trumpet? Have you seriously never heard of The Commitments?”
