Jimmy Rabbitte is convinced that if he can build a Soul band in his hometown of Dublin, Ireland, that the crowds of working-class folks will come. Even though the band comes together and the all-white group initially struggles with the music, they have some small successes.

Robert Arkins, Michael Aherne, Maria Doyle Kennedy, and Angeline Ball star in The Commitments.
