A bunch of British working-class amateur filmmakers with nothing left to lose, tackle one of Hollywood's greatest musicals in order to save their beloved Club.
Growing old amid flickering memories and teetering on the brink of survival, Bradford Movie Makers, Britain’s oldest amateur film-making club, pulls out all the stops to save their ancient clubhouse from its final reckoning in this quietly hilarious, profoundly moving portrait of shared artistic folly that speaks to the delusional dreamer in us all. A thoroughly moving and ultimately joyful affair. This is partly because it reminds us that, while we sit in the dark to watch a film, it’s more fun when we do it with other people. This is a wonderful story that is bound to be picked up by Hollywood and made into a touching and amusing film.
