Our September main film will be Fisherman's Friends...
Big-hearted comedy drama about the popular Port Isaac shanty singing choir.
A fast-living, cynical London music executive heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he's pranked by his boss into trying to sign a group of shanty singing fishermen. He becomes the ultimate 'fish out of water' as he struggles to gain the respect or enthusiasm of the unlikely boy band and their families who value friendship and community over fame and fortune. As he's drawn deeper into the traditional way of life he's forced to re-evaluate his own integrity and ultimately question what success really means.
“Embraces you like a warm sweater.” Mark Kermode
“This gentle, sweet-natured comedy has warmth and a certain X factor of likeability, helped by big-hearted performances from a cast including Daniel Mays and Tuppence Middleton.” Guardian
