Get ready to sing and dance, laugh and love all over again! Past and present intertwine as a pregnant Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is busy re-launching her mother’s taverna while husband Sky is away in New York.  Flashbacks transport us back in time to learn how the Dynamos came into being and how Donna (Lily James) met Sophie’s three putative fathers.
“It’s down to cannily cast diva Cher, playing Sophie’s maternal grandmother Ruby Sheridan, to really raise the roof as she does singing Fernando in duet with her lost love (played by Andy Garcia). The moment white-wigged Cher steps out of her helicopter on the jetty in that sparkling, sun-drenched bay, she owns the movie hook, line and sinker and virtually nothing else exists. Or at least until Meryl Streep appears singing My Love, My Life in that famous cliff-top church and instantly reduces the audience to floods of tears. In a replica of The Winner Takes It All showstopper in Mamma Mia!, it’s a stunningly bravura moment that will live long in the memory.”  Radio Times
