He arrives in the small Welsh town, unsettling the life of his ex-lover while inspiring his newfound daughter to follow in his footsteps with a musical career of her own, against the wishes of her mother.

Trivia

'Craig Ferguson' was in a motorbike accident shortly after filming began. He broke several ribs and his collarbone. All scenes throughout the movie where you see him using his left hand while his right hand hangs nearly useless were done shortly after the accident when he couldn't move the right side of his body without considerable pain.

Charlotte Church = Nice Surprise
14 July 2004 | by (Dorset, UK) – See all my reviews

I thoroughly enjoyed this movie, and unexpectedly so. I am not Charlotte Church's number one fan, but all the same she was not as bad as people seem to think, and it's criminal that this movie was in and out of theatres almost straight away.

The plot is, I agree, similar to 'What a Girl Wants', but I think that they are different enough that you could see both and be quite happy.

Craig Ferguson was excellent, all the more so as he wrote and directed, and Joss Ackland and Jemma Redgrave contributed to a solid supporting cast.

I'd definitely give 4.5 out of 5 for this, only knocking off .5 as Imelda Staunton and Phyllida Law were somewhat wasted.
