Overview

Dick Clement and Ian La Frenais, co-screenwriters of the hit 1991 music drama The Commitments, re-team to contribute to this musical comedy about two brothers who watch their dreams of superstardom go up in flames thanks to their classmate Bono and his band U2. Neil (Ben Barnes) and Ivan McCormick (Robert Sheehan) are two aspiring musicians with a passion for punk and the drive to become rock legends. They've got big ambitions, but Neil and Ivan have failed to realize that someone else in their social circle is even more determined to succeed than they are. His name is Bono (Martin McCann), and his band U2 is about to become one of the biggest rock-and-roll acts of all time. When Bono reveals to Neil that Ivan would make the perfect addition to U2, the intense jealousy that follows threatens to drive a wedge between the two brothers who once swore they would take over the world together.
