Publisher's Summary

Barrytown, Dublin, has something to sing about. The Commitments are spreading the gospel of the soul. Ably managed by Jimmy Rabitte, brilliantly coached by Joel "The Lips" Fagan, their twin assault on Motown and Barrytown takes them by leaps and bounds from paris hall to immortality on vinyl. But can The Commitments live up to their name?

If you could sum up The Commitments in three words, what would they be?

Great music story!

Which character – as performed by Aidan Gillen – was your favorite?

Jimmy- the story revolves around him.

Any additional comments?

The dream of rock and roll stardom, and how close a band could come. This is a great story for anyone who ever dreamed of joining a band and (almost) making it big!
