Jimmy Rabbitte is a man with a vision – to bring soul music to Dublin.
Meeting up with Deco and his friends who all live in a working-class suburb of Dublin, they form a band to try to make it big. At least big enough to have enough money for a roof over their head and a few pints in the corner pub. So the Commitments spend endless nights in the rehearsal room, wandering through pubs and community centres…
The recently passed away director Alan Parker (“Angel Heart”) worked here with a low budget, relying on great amateur actors.
The result is a lively film full of local colour, spontaneity and hot soul.
We strongly recommend that you buy your tickets in advance here.
