Mark Kermode, Kermode & Mayo’s Film Review
A London music executive is pranked into signing a group of shanty-singing fishermen in this true story British comedy drama.
In a remote Cornish village for a stag weekend, fast-living music executive Danny (Daniel Mays, Rogue One: A Star Wars Story) is pranked by his boss into trying to sign an unlikely local outfit (led by James Purefoy). After being successfully wooed by Danny, the 10-piece band go on to a achieve a top ten hit with their Universal Records debut.
I sauntered out of the screening of this clunky, sometimes clumsy, but redeemingly engaging and warm-hearted film with a smile on my face.
