Based on the true story of the Fisherman’s Friends, all-male folk singers from Port Isaac in Cornwall who in 2010 unexpectedly made it into the charts.  When music executive Danny (Daniel Mays) arrives in Cornwall for a stag weekend, he finds a close-knit community wary of incomers.  As part of a joke he offers to sign up the group, under their leader Jim (James Purefoy), but comes to see that they have real potential.  He also encounters Jim’s single-mother daughter Alwyn (Tuppence Middleton).

Watching Fisherman’s Friends is like slipping on one of the singers’ own thick-knit pullovers: warm and comforting. It’s no Local Hero or The Full Monty, but it’s just the ticket if you’re in the mood for uplifting, undemanding entertainment.”  Radio Times

Their singing is robustly and winningly performed, and the whole thing is heartfelt.  It’s pretty goofy but fun.”  The Guardian

“Filmed on location with some breathtaking scenes, this is coastal escapism at its finest.”  The Upcoming
