This delightful piece of Britcom silliness loosely based on the incredible rise of the Cornish sea-shanty group got lost during the COVID shutdown. FISHERMAN’S FRIENDS is not, in this case, a strong menthol throat lozenge, but a 2019 feel-good film based on a true story. In it, a band of singing Cornish fishermen and lifeboatmen are discovered by a London music executive who is able to snag them a contract with a major record label. The real-life “buoy” band scored a top-ten single and an appearance at the famed Glastonbury Festival. They still perform in the off-season when not out catching lobsters. The film weaves threads of the real Fisherman’s Friends' journey with a rom-com element and the timeless lesson that fame and fortune do not guarantee a happy life. Directed by Chris Foggin.
