ONE CHANCE (PG)

Dreams do come true.

They don't come true for 99.99 per cent of us, but technically it does happen on occasion.

Based on a true story, One Chance is about humble British mobile phone salesman Paul Potts (James Corden), who dreams of being an opera singer.

His girlfriend Julz (Alexandra Roach) helps him through his ups and downs, until he finally decides to try out for the very first season of reality TV series Britain's Got Talent in 2007.

Spoiler alert - he wins!

Corden is absolutely wonderful as Potts, capturing the man's sweetness, smarts and strength.

The film deals with the bullying he endured and his economic hardship in a sensitive fashion, and in the end it's impossible not to love the guy.
