Film Review: FISHERMEN’S FRIENDS

Movie Scene

A biographical comedy-drama directed by Chris Foggin, a man who cut his teeth as an assistant director on projects like The World’s End, The Look of Love, I Give It a Year and the criminally-underrated Austenland. Nick Moorcroft, Meg Leonard and Piers Ashworth deliver an involving screenplay based on a true story about Port Isaac’s Fisherman’s Friends – a group of Cornish fisherman get signed by Universal Records and enter the top ten charts with their debut album of traditional sea shanties. The ensemble includes Daniel Mays, James Purefoy, Tuppence Middleton,  David Hayman, Dave Johns, Maggie Steed, Sam Swainsbury and Christian Brassington. A sleeper British hit that has undeniable charm.
