Review of "Fisherman's Friends"

Clearly intended as a community-oriented feelgood sort of film, with roughty-toughty fisherman singing shanties as they haul in their nets. Their local culture seems to be devoid of every other type of music except authentic folk, which already identifies this as a fairy tale...every time I visit a pub in a place like that the singer is always country and western.

Anyway, it's nice enough, and pleasant to look at, but at least half an hour too long, and with just a bit too many plot elements for its weight.

Watched at the Everyman Cinema in Muswell Hill.
