Story


From the director of "The Devil Wears Prada," "One Chance" is the remarkable and inspirational true story of Paul Potts, a shy, bullied shop assistant by day and an amateur opera singer by night. Paul became an instant YouTube phenomenon after being chosen by Simon Cowell for "Britain's Got Talent." Wowing audiences worldwide with his phenomenal voice, Paul went on to win "Britain's Got Talent" and the hearts of millions. Fresh from celebrating his Tony Award-winning Broadway run in "One Man, Two Guvnors," BAFTA winner James Corden ("The History Boys") stars as Paul Potts and is supported by an acclaimed ensemble cast that includes Julie Walters ("Mamma Mia!," "Calendar Girls," "Billy Elliott"), Mackenzie Crook ("Pirates of the Caribbean"), Colm Meaney ("Get Him to the Greek"), Jemima Rooper ("Kinky Boots") and rising star Alexandra Roach ("The Iron Lady").

REVIEWS BY CRITICS

“..the film ultimately feels like little more than a 104-minute version of the backstory clip package that might air before a key contestant auditions on American Idol..”
by David Ehrlich [A.V. Club]
“..instead of presenting an energetic scrapper, the movie suggests Potts was a milquetoast bumbler..”
by Graham Fuller [NY Daily News]
“..the film is, indeed, a bit pat. Sweet and funny - largely thanks to James Corden in the lead role - it's never particularly surprising..”
by Sara Stewart [New York Post]
