The next Film Club showing at the Library is Fisherman’s Friends, another warm and witty British film, this time telling how a group of Cornish fishermen came to achieve a top-ten hit with an album of traditional sea shanties.
Loosely based on real-life events and filmed in picturesque Port Isaac on the north Cornish coast, Daniel Mays plays a cynical London music executive who reluctantly heads for Cornwall for a stag weekend with a challenge from his boss to sign to their record label a group of shanty-singing fishermen.
Gradually, he finds himself being drawn into the local community as he begins to learn the meaning of loyalty, love and friendship. Also starring are James Purefoy and Tuppence Middleton
As ever, Film Club screenings are strictly for Library members only and there is no entrance fee. Refreshments will be on sale, including ice creams, during the interval.
Lights go down at 2pm on Thursday, July 25
