From award-winning director Ben Lewin (The Sessions, The Catcher Was A Spy), Falling For Figaro follows a brilliant young fund manager named Millie (Danielle MacDonald from Patti Cake$, Dumplin), who quits her job and ends things with her long-term boyfriend in order to fulfil her dream of becoming an opera singer — in the Scottish Highlands.
After taking the leap and following her passion, Millie 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 (Hugh Skinner), 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.
With stand-out performances from the endlessly entertaining cast and wonderfully feel-good humour, FALLING FOR FIGARO, is truly a pitch perfect rom-com.
