Brief History of The Commitments
Emanating from the book and film of the same name, The Commitment is an Irish-British-American film made in 1991, which was directed by Alan Parker and adapted from the book, written of the same name; published in 1987 by Roddy Doyle. The book was the first book in his trio of publications, which became known as the “Barrytown Trilogy.”
The book follows the story of its lead character Jimmy Rabbitte, who lives in Dublin, Ireland and gathers his mates to form a soul music band, which they decide to call “The Commitments.”
Film producers Roger Randall-Cutler and Lynda Myles, who commissioned Doyle to pen an adaptation and script for the film, purchased the film rights in 1987.
Beacon Communications produced the film in 1989 and filming took 53 days and cost a total of USD 12 million, the majority of filming took place in locations and around Dublin.
The acting talent employed were largely local Dublin unknown’s, and were chosen more for their musical abilities and singing skills and qualities; and for their physical likeness to Doyle’s descriptions of the fictional book characters, rather than for their acting skills, which were developed during production.
The film was released to fairly positive reviews and grossed almost USD 15 million in North America.
Awards and nominations bestowed on the film and production, included an Academy Awards nomination for Best Film Editing, a Golden Globe Award nomination for Best Motion Picture – Musical or Comedy and the film and its cast also won six BAFTA Awards including Best Direction and Best Film as well as the Best Soundtrack Award bestowed by the 1992 BRIT Awards and three awards from the 12thLondon Film Critics Awards for Best Producer of the Year, Best Director of the Year and British or Irish Screenwriter of the Year.
Although the film was only modestly successful in North America it has since gone on to enjoy cult film status and has been developed into a hugely successful stage production.
