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.
“Fisherman’s Friends is a thoroughly amiable and upbeat British comedy with a flavour of Ealing Studios and The Full Monty about it. “

2019 Musical Drama
A fever dream musical, exploring Elton John’s early years as a young boy and his piano to extravagant superstar famed the world over. Framed through Elton’s scant recollections and musical songbook after a stint in rehab, Rocketman delivers an exuberant and flamboyant dramatic punch.
"An uplifting and devilish dip into the anachronistic and hedonistic world of a superstar that puts audiences into a musical fantasy. A musical biopic for adults." MOVIOLA
