The great British public love Netflix feelgood movie 'Bank of Dave'

It’s been nearly a week now since the world premiere in Burnley of Netflix movie ‘Bank of Dave’ and it’s fair to say the warmhearted film has struck a chord with the viewing public.

Trending on the popular streaming platform after just a day, the feelgood Burnley-based biopic tells the story of Colne minibus salesman Dave Fishwick’s crusade to set up a bank in Burnley.

Starring James Bond actor Rory Kinnear in the title role, Game of Thrones star Joel Fry as a London lawyer trying to make the dream come true and Downton Abbey’s Hugh Bonneville trying to scupper that dream, the film has proved a hit with Dave’s fellow Lancastrians if social media is anything to go by.
