Ten fishermen from Cornwall are signed by Universal Records and achieve a top ten hit with their debut album of Sea Shanties.
Nine years ago, a group of Cornish fishermen were singing sea shanties in their village pub when a holidaying music executive (played here by Danny Mays) came in for a pint. The result was a million-pound record deal, chart-topping success, a performance at the Glastonbury Festival, and this feel-good film about their lives.
Starring James Purefoy (High-Rise), Tuppence Middleton (The Imitation Game) Dave Johns (I, Daniel Blake) and Christian Brassington (Poldark), the film was filmed in small and picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac on Cornwall’s north coast, adding a rugged beauty to the background.
