Jimmy Rabbitte knows he’s the world’s greatest band manager. Now he just needs a band. Audition and everyone he can find, Jimmy gathers 10 of the most talented, least experienced musicians from the rough streets of working-class Dublin, Ireland, with a plan to launch the best soul band ever to take the stage. The Commitments is a loving tribute to the fire and passion of the great soul's standards including “Mustang Sally”, “In the Midnight Hour”, “Chain of Fools” and much more.
My Opinion: I hate to admit this but I’ve never seen this movie so watching this for the first time was very excited and as I am a music lover and soul music is good music. This has a great cast and beautifully acted.
