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..
Taylor Swift wrote and recorded an original song for this movie. It's called "Sweeter Than Fiction". See more »
When saying goodbye to Julz after their first date, Paul sees her to the Cardiff train and waves her goodbye. They are in fact on the Swansea bound platform of Port Talbot Parkway and she is going in completely the wrong direction. 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.

I really enjoyed this movie. I loved hearing Paul Potts sing on Britain's Got Talent, brought tears to my eyes. And this movie did the same. I actually sobbed in parts. And yes, the acting is superb, the story great, and you really feel like cheering for Paul (played by James Corden). GREAT MOVIE!!!
