On A Clear Day
Another Brit, working class under-dog story (see Kinky Boots). Again it's standard fare but with a big old British heart that have some critics claiming it to be the next 'Billy Elliot'.

Made redundant after years in a shipyard & still grieving over the drowning of his son decades ago, Glaswegian granddad Frank (Mullan) devises a dubious plan to restore his pride: he'll swim the English Channel.
