The true story of Paul Potts, a shy, bullied shop assistant by day and an amateur opera singer by night who became a phenomenon after being chosen for -- and ultimately winning -- Britain's Got Talent (2007).
Director David Frankel (The Devil Wears Prada, Marley and Me) teams with screenwriter Justin Zackham (The Bucket List) to tell the story of amateur opera singer Paul Potts (James Corden), who went from meek shop clerk to international superstar after his stunning performance on Britain's Got Talent became a viral video phenomenon..
Where Paul is waiting for Julz as she finishes work, as she comes round the corner there is an EE (Everything Everywhere) store visible behind her. EE didn't exist at this time. See more »
You're the lucky one, Paul. You know what you were put on this earth to do. You have a natural talent for singing.
Not according to Pavarotti.
Screw Pavarotti. He's nothing but a binge eater with a comb-over.

Having watched the series of Britains Got Talent and remember seeing Paul Potts do his audition I can still see the nervous man walk onto stage amongst giggles and snickers from the audience. Once Paul started singing the hairs on my arms shot straight up and a cold shiver of amazement ran down my back at the magnificence and power of his voice.
The film shows most of the life of Paul before going on the show and the hardships he went through still believing in his love for opera and wanting to sing so much.
An absolutely brilliant film and well worth the watch as it has a great support cast with lots of humour, and by the end of the film you'll want to know more about the man from Wales.
