Ferdia Walsh-Peelo, Jack Reynor, and Lucy Boynton must also be applauded for their fantastic character portrayals. As the main character, Walsh-Peelo (who plays Cosmo) creates a very believable struggling high school kid whose main goal is to get the girl (Lucy Boynton). This concept is not fully original, but it sure is done well because of Walsh-Peelo! He continually changes his influences, adding a sense of humor to the film. But really, the best actor in this film is Jack Reynor. He plays Cosmo's brother, Brendan. This is the brother that everyone has always wanted to have. Or maybe its just me, whatever. Reynor proves that he is a very skilled actor and now I really hope that he gets the role as young Han Solo.
The Bottom Line: So far, this is my favorite movie of the year. Maybe its just because I'm a sucker for music films but you need to see for yourself.
