The Dublin native admitted that the praise is so huge, particularly from Bono, because the rockstar’s early career was much like the kids in the film.
“The validation for the film is huge from him because that’s his road and that’s the kids in Sing Street’s road that they’e gone down, and it’s so many great artists road,” he told Goss.ie.
