Fisherman’s Friends (12A) 112 min. Musical/Drama     TRAILER     REVIEW

Ten fishermen from Cornwall achieve a Top 10 hit after they are signed by Universal Records for their canny talent of being able to sing a sea shanty or two.

 

 

A fast-living, cynical London music executive (Danny Mays) heads to a remote Cornish village on a stag weekend where he's pranked by his boss (Noel Clarke) 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 (including Tuppence Middleton) 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.

Yesterday (12A) 116 min. Comedy/Drama/Musical     TRAILER     REVIEW

Jack Malik is a struggling singer-songwriter in a tiny English seaside town whose dreams of fame are rapidly fading, despite the fierce devotion and support of his childhood best friend, Ellie. After a freak bus accident during a mysterious global blackout, Jack wakes up to discover that The Beatles have never existed... and he finds himself with a very complicated problem, indeed. “The makers of this biographical romance clearly adore Virginia

Pure fantasy of joyous proportions. A crowd-pleaser as Jack belts out Beatles hit after hit. Supported by a wonderful ensemble, this Richard Curtis-penned film is not far away from his usual formula - with a gentle heart and a light touch. Yesterday ensures that the musical legacy of The Beatles lives on for everyone.
