Brendan Gleeson is Murray, a once proud fisherman who now, along with his former colleagues in the harbour of Tickle Cove are out of work and forced to live off welfare. Prohibited from fishing enough to make a living and the community spirit having faded a long time ago, the Mayor comes up with a dazzling plan – a giant corporation need a location to build a factory and Tickle Cove could be just the right place. But there’s just one problem – in order to qualify, they must have a doctor in residence. Which they don’t have…

Once there, it is up to the community to do whatever it takes to make him stay there which involves a long line of deception engineered by Brendan Gleeson.
We have seen this plot before in a number of different ways. I am a big fan of Brendan Gleeson who always seem to play a likeable quirky character. He did not disappoint. A comedy that made me smile and even laugh a few times.
Parental Guidance: No f-bombs or nudity. Implied sex with women screaming orgasms in the beginning.
Then a petro chemical company turns up willing to build a reprocessing plant on the coast – their bid is in with a chance. They like the community but they must have a resident doctor which they do not have and with a small community are unlikely to get one. Brendan Gleeson plays Murray French erstwhile fisherman and now – by default – the Mayor and they think all is lost when fate deals them a one off chance. A plastic surgeon gets sent to the community as a way to avoid awkward questions by the law. The community decide to do a charm offensive in order to persuade this man that their little community is heaven. Problem is he loves cricket, jazz (and they don’t) and he has a life he is already missing. Can the plan ever work?
Now this is a gentle comedy and the laughs are more smiles than guffaws. However, the film has a warmth and charm that makes you want to watch it. Taylor Kitsch is nice, charming and plays the part to a tee but Gleeson as ever is the scene stealer though he is ably aided in this respect from a supporting cast that all do a fine job. If you like your humour on the slow side but don’t mind a tale from left field then I think there is a lot here to enjoy.

This was a joy to watch . . . natural, heartwarming (but not at all soppy mind) with subtle humour alongside some 'small harbour' theaticsPublished 12 days ago by Kay
