LONDON: If there is one thing John Carney loves, it’s a movie about the positive power of music. After all, the Irish director’s previous credits include “Once,” “Begin Again” and “Sing Street,” all of which focus on ways in which music can help broken people start to heal. So it’s no great surprise that “Flora and Son” — which won rave reviews at this year’s Sundance Film Festival and is subsequently finding itself a wider audience — sees Carney and his engaging cast staying true to what the director knows.
