Falling For Figaro
Falling For Figaro

IFC Films will release Falling For Figaro, a romantic comedy set in the fierce world of opera-singing competitions, starring BAFTA-winner Joanna Lumley (Absolutely Fabulous, Me Before You, The Wolf of Wall Street) and rising star Danielle Macdonald (Dumplin’, Patti Cake$, Skin). Directed by Ben Lewin (The Catcher Was A Spy, Please Stand By, The Sessions), the film is expected to be released in 2021.

The film also stars Hugh Skinner (Mamma Mia! Here We Go Again; TV’s Fleabag and W1A), Gary Lewis (Filth; TV’s His Dark Materials and Outlander), Shazad Latif (TV’s Star Trek: Discovery) and Rebecca Benson (TV’s Flack).

Millie (Macdonald) is a brilliant young fund manager, who decides to leave her unfulfilling job and longterm boyfriend behind to chase her lifelong 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 (Lumley). It is there she meets Max, another of Meghan’s students who is also training for the upcoming “Singer of Renown” contest. What begins as a brutal competition between Millie and Max slowly turns into something more…

Director Ben Lewin added, “I associate IFC Films with classy and exciting products. I am very proud to be working with them again, particularly on such a different and delightfully fun movie.”
