Certificate 12A. Running time: 1hour 52 mins. Comedy, Drama, Musical. Doors open at 7pm
A fast-living, cynical London music executive (played by Danny Mays) 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 (led by James Purefoy). 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.
Based on the true story of Port Isaac’s well loved Cornish shanty singing fishermen – this gentle, sweet-natured comedy has warmth and a certain X factor of likability, helped by big-hearted performances from a strong British cast including Daniel Mays, James Purefoy, David Hayman and Tuppence Middleton.
A 12A certificate means… “Films classified 12A contain material that is not generally suitable for children aged under 12. No one younger than 12 may see a 12A film in a cinema unless accompanied by an adult. Adults planning to take a child under 12 to view a 12A film should consider whether the film is suitable for that child. To help them decide, we recommend that they check the BBFCinsight for that film in advance” – British Board of Film Classification
