Funky and unpretentious, this is a film about a group of working class Irish kids who decide to make it their mission to bring American soul music to Dublin. Based on author Roddy Doyle's hilarious novel about "the world's hardest working band," this story follows a rag-tag bunch of James Brown fans and follows their angst of being part of the working class. Punctuated with classic Irish obscenity and hilarity, Alan Parker's big screen version of The Commitments serves up an extremely entertaining account of a flash-in-the-pan band that achieved the unlikely. Features powerful performances from virtual unknowns Robert Arkins, Andrew Strong and a memorable turn from Colm Meaney in the role of Mr. Rabbitte.

Description

Jimmy Rabbitte is a man with a vision - to bring soul music to Dublin. Putting an ad in the local paper he weeds out impure musical tastes and keeps the talented ones to form a group. The band is nervous, raw and rough. But something in their music speaks to their audience of curious kids and complaining relatives in a dingy community centre on Dublin's poverty stricken northside.
