James Corden leads an all-star cast in the uplifting true story of TV talent show sensation Paul Potts. Paul Potts (James Corden) is a shy young amateur opera singer. He works as a mobile phone salesman in Bridgend with his best friend (Mackenzie Crook) and marries Julie-Ann (Alexandra Roach), who he meets in an internet chatroom. But this smalltown boy's uneventful life changes forever with the flip of a coin. When it turns up heads, he submits his entry to Simon Cowell's new TV show, 'Britain's Got Talent'. At an audition in Cardiff, Paul stuns the audience with his powerful performance of Puccini's 'Nessun Dorma'. Suddenly, his career sky-rockets and he goes from near-bankruptcy to superstardom! Co-produced by Simon Cowell himself, this funny and touching true-life rags to riches tale is directed by David Frankel of 'The Devil Wears Prada' fame. The outstanding supporting cast also includes Colm Meaney and Julie Walters as Paul's parents.
