Sing Street

Sing Street is a recommended movie. Despite the plot cliches (growing up, escape from boredom, bullying, teenage romance etc) it still delivers on being a delightful movie that should appeal to all Gen X who grew in 80's Britain.

Flat Earthers will note there's a scene in the 52nd minute where our hero peers East across the water from Ireland and declares that from 30 miles away, on a clear day, just after the rain, when there's no dust in air "you actually see the mainland of Britain".

According to this calculator the mainland is 486 feet below the horizon because of the curvature of the earth.
