Film Review - Fisherman's Friends: One and All


2019’s “Fisherman’s Friends” (released in the U.S. in 2020) was a thick slice of feel-good cinema, looking to charm a wide audience with its version of an origin story for the folk group, who won over listeners with their lively versions of classic sea shanties.
