Cinema Club Film Series: The Commitments (1991)

Set in the Northside of Dublin, the film tells the story of Jimmy Rabbitte (Robert Arkins), a young music fanatic who assembles a group of working-class youths to form a soul band named “The Commitments.” The film’s young lead actors were mostly inexperienced and cast because of their musical backgrounds. Praised for its music, performances and humor, the film soundtrack achieved triple-platinum status and the film won four of six BAFTA Awards for Best Film, Best Direction, Best Adapted Screenplay and Best Editing.
