Falling for Figaro
From award-winning director Ben Lewin (The Sessions) Falling For Figaro follows a brilliant young fund manager named Millie (Danielle Macdonald, Patti Cake$), who quits her job and ends things with her longterm boyfriend in order to fulfill her dream of becoming an opera singer — in the Scottish Highlands.
She begins intense vocal training lessons with renowned but fearsome singing teacher and former opera diva Meghan Geoffrey-Bishop (Joanna Lumley). It is there she meets Max, another of Meghan’s students who is also training for the upcoming “Singer of Renown” contest. The competition between Millie and Max gradually evolves into something different and deeper.
“Expect no surprises in Falling for Figaro, a corny, cute-enough carpe diem comedy, in which its lovable ensemble — led by Danielle Macdonald, and spiked by a deliciously imperious Joanna Lumley — bring the grace notes to a pretty standard-issue script.” ~Guy Lodge, Variety
