In the tradition of Billy Elliot and The Full Monty comes the new British film One Chance. It is based on the true story of Paul Potts, winner of the first season of Britain’s Got Talent.
The film chronicles Potts’ life prior to BGT and his journey towards stardom. Growing up in the working-class town of Bristol, England, Potts develops a love and passion for opera. His overbearing father rubbishes his ambitions of being an opera singer. A mobile phone salesperson by day, opera singer by night, this is a rags-to-riches tale.
James Corden is delightful to watch as the accident-prone Paul Potts, and entirely believable.
This is a heartwarming, feel-good film with some laugh-out-loud moments. (VP)
