FISHERMAN’S FRIENDS (Theatrical Release UK 2019)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.4|5.0 Starsìììì

Fisherman’s Friends—based on the story of shantie-singing fishermen in Port Isaac, Cornwall, England—becomes an explosive WOW! due to its realistic capture of small village attitudes steeped in hundreds of years of commonly shared history. Be aware that the film does not start out with the big bang…it builds to that…stick it out through the opening scenes and a story unfolds that completely entertains with its charm, values, and effortless luring of its audience into caring about this village and the fate of each of its characters. Know that the movie contains very earthy scenes, humor, and music throughout but it will not fail to entertain the audience appreciating the basic human story of life.
