Johnny Murphy in The Commitments

The Commitments

2001 R

Robert Arkins stars as Jimmy Rabbitte, a committed young man with an ambitious goal: to form an American-style soul band in a low-income section of Dublin, Ireland. Before long, he's cobbled together a group of misfits who can really play. But can they stay together long enough to make it to the top? Director Alan Parker packs his film with fresh faces, evocative locations and soul classics such as "Mustang Sally" and "Chain of Fools."
