Fictiefilm / 2019 / duration: 1:52 / Verenigd Koninkrijk / director: Chris Foggin / Cast: James Purefoy, Tuppence Middleton, Daniel Mays / Spoken languages: English / Subtitles: Dutch, French

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.

Press:

"This gentle, sweet-natured comedy has warmth and a certain X factor of likability, helped by big-hearted performances from a cast including Daniel Mays and Tuppence Middleton." ★★★ - The Guardian

"An upbeat British comedy with a flavour of Ealing Studios and The Full Monty about it." - Independent
