From director and co-writer Ben Lewin; Falling for Figaro is a new comedy/romance starring Joanna Lumley, Danielle Macdonald, Shazad Latif and Hugh Skinner.
Set in the Scottish Highlands; Macdonald plays a brilliant young fund manager who leaves her unfulfilling job and long-term boyfriend to chase her lifelong dream of becoming an opera singer.
Meryl Streep’s Florence Foster Jenkins (2016) definitely came to mind as this trailer played. Though, it does look like MacDonald’s character can at the very least hold a tune; unlike Miss Jenkins.
As a fan of this cast, I can’t wait for all the delightful humour to unfold.
Rebecca Benson, Bhav Joshi, Mark Weinman, Margaret Fraser, Jo Cameron Brown, Saskia Ashdown, Vanessa Borrini and Christina Bennington also star.
