Fishermans Friends (12a)

Director Chris Foggin. Comedy/Drama/Music

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.

Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

Very popular and enjoyed by all. Better than we expected and a real feel-good start to our season.

Thoroughly enjoyed by our audience, left foot tapping and humming shanties with smiles on their faces. Excellent feel good movie

A great film for village halls. Although the story was a bit predictable- townee versus community- it was well constructed and acted with warmth and humour. Really enjoyable film
