The Commitments (1991) R

The Commitments, a comedy filmed in Dublin, tells the story of working class youths that form a soul band.  The leader, Jimmy, is fed up with the band scene in Ireland.  So, he decides to form his own soul band but unlike the musicians he idolizes, his group is all white.  Due to a clash of egos, all his work is for naught. The film has a great cast of Irish talent.

Check back next month for another review of a film set in Ireland.
