Film: The Cobbler


Ever imagined what it would be like to step into your customers’ shoes for a day? Well, that’s the basis for Adam Sandler’s new film, The Cobbler.

Max Simkin (Sandler) works in a shoe repair shop that has been in the family for generations.

After using an ancient stitching machine on the footwear, he discovers that wearing them transforms him into his customer. A US flop, but useful for business leaders left kicking their heels one evening, perhaps.

The Cobbler is released on 22 May
