The Commitments: Then And Now
Featuring a cast of unknowns, some of whom hadn't even acted before, The Commitments was the surprise smash hit film of 1991.
Set in Dublin, the story focused on a group of working class kids who decide to get together and form a group playing soul standards from the 60's and 70's.
The group of misfits, featuring a then 17 year old Andrew Strong in the role of lead singer Declan 'Deco’ Cuffe won hearts around the world with it's mixture of comedy, drama and great songs.
The soundtrack was also massive, going on to sell over 12 million copies, but what do the stars look like today?
