Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again (PG)
31st August 2018 4:30 pm
When Sophie suddenly finds herself pregnant, she journeys into her mother’s past to unearth the answers to some burning questions.
10 years after Mamma Mia! and Sophie (Amanda Seyfried) is back on the sun-drenched Greek island of Kalokairi, however, her circumstances are a little different this time. Now pregnant, Sophie is struggling to find the knowledge and strength to move on to the most important chapter in her life.
Searching for inspiration, she retraces her mother Donna’s (Meryl Streep) steps from the past in the hope of finding the courage to be the best mum she can be. We then flashback in time to a young Donna (Lily James) back in 1979, who is enjoying the prime time of her life, singing in a band and dating a familiar trio of gentleman, named Sam (Jeremy Irvine), Harry (Hugh Skinner) and Bill (Josh Dylan).
Back in the present day, Sophie is wondering if she is about to discover which of her three possible fathers is the real deal, when an uninvited guest arrives in the shape of Grandma Ruby (Cher).
Ol Parker directs the all-star cast, which includes Amanda Seyfried (Les Miserables), Christine Baranski (Chicago), Pierce Brosnan (The Foreigner), Julie Walters (Mary Poppins Returns) and Colin Firth (Bridget Jones’s Baby). Lily James (Baby Driver) is new to the scene alongside pop icon Cher (Burlesque).
Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again is anticipated to be one of the biggest films this summer and is backed by some of ABBA’s best loved hits.
Running time: 114 mins
Brill loved it !
I wish I could have given zero stars. What an unmitigated pile of rubbish. Hastily thrown together 'plot', mainly lesser known songs, even Julie Walters was clearly phoning it in.
The popcorn was rancid.
Two hours of my life I will never get back.
