Pass the popcorn: This brilliant Irish movie is on RTE tonight

Happy Christmas Eve everybody.

It's the night before the big day and most of us are hastily wrapping last-minute presents or in the pub but by tonight, it'll be time to relax.

And what better to relax with then a good aul Irish movie?

RTE has come to the rescue again tonight with the perfect choice to settle down in front of – Sing Street.

If you haven't seen it, then you're in for a treat.

Set in 1980's Dublin, the movie follows teenage Conor as grapples with his parents divorce and having to move to the rough-and-tumble Christian Brothers school.

When he meets the mysterious Raphina, he decides to set up a band to woo her – with hilarious results.

It's jammed back with cool 80's tunes, brilliant costumes and a real feeling of nostalgia – what more could you want?

Also, the band's video for Riddle of the Model is not only seriously funny but actually quite a good song.

Sit back and crack open a box of Quality Street – you won't regret it.
