FROM the makers of last year’s delightful Finding Your Feet comes yet another homespun charmer this week.

Rather than a celebration of throat lozenges, Fisherman’s Friends tells the story of the all-male Cornish choir who signed a record deal with Universal in 2010. Brought to screen by Kids in Love director Chris Foggin, the film boasts a strong cast of British favourites - don’t they all? Swimming With Men’s Daniel Mays leads as the cynical London music producer who finds himself pranked into trying to sign a rag tag local boy band called the Fishermen’s Friends.

Except, there’s a snag. These Cornish choristers have no interest in fame and future and have even less time for cynical London music producers. This is a story of love, loyalty and locality. Whilst you may know the outcome already - most of the original band appear in the film via cameos - it’s the feel good journey that’ll see you through. With James Purefoy, Tuppence Middleton, Noel Clarke and David Hayman.

Also out this week is Jessica Hynes’ The Fight. Though Hynes is best for her comedic television turns in the likes of W1A and Up the Women, her feature film debut is a more straight faced affair. As social dramas go, The Fight is very worthy, well meaning and a little bleak, if never particularly hard hitting.

Not content merely writing and directing her debut, Hynes also leads its cast, starring alongside Anita Dobson and Christopher Fairbank. Hynes plays Tina, a care worker by day and harassed mother of three by night. Her neurotic mother’s (Dobson) no help and there’s anxiety too in the upcoming arrival of her father (Fairbank) into the family home. To top it all, Tina’s eldest is subject to the torment of a school bully.

Unfortunately, Tina hasn’t the backbone to handle her problems. What she needs is to learn to fight for herself. What she needs is to learn how to box. Literally.

One more for this week is a gender-switched remake of Nancy Meyers’ What Women Want. From director Adam Shankman, What Men Want sees Taraji P. Henson play Ali Davis, a sports coach fighting for success in a sexist world. When Ali gains the ability to hear the thoughts of the men around her, a brighter future beckons. Naturally, there are some unfortunate consequences she must face along the way.
