Firth plays Harry, one of three possible fathers, in this musical comedy directed by Phyllida Lloyd. Bride-to-be Sophie tries to find her real father before her wedding day as she, her friends, and her family sing hit songs by the popular ’70s group ABBA to set the scenes. Co-starring Meryl Streep, Amanda Seyfried, Pierce Brosnan, Stellan Skarsgård and Christine Baranski.
Frankly, I think the ABBA factor was the thing that got people excited, as well as the presence of people like Meryl and Pierce. But I think if you live on Skopelos and you haven’t seen Mamma Mia you’ll probably still know all the songs. So, I think people were extremely happy about the film being there.
