"Fisherman's Friends"

"Fisherman's Friends" is the new 'comedy-drama' feature from Samuel Goldwyn Films, directed by Chris Foggin, starring Daniel Mays, James Purefoy and Tuppence Middleton based on a true story about 'Port Isaac's Fisherman's Friends', a group of  traditional 'sea-shanty' singing 'Cornish' fishermen from Port Isaac who were signed by Universal Records and achieved a hit with their debut album:

Attempting to overcome the fishermen's scepticism about the music business, he finds himself drawn into the community, has his integrity tested and ultimately is shown the meaning of loyalty, love and friendship..."
