Movie Info

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, Patti Cake$, Dumplin), 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.

You know where this is all heading, but Macdonald makes a pleasant presence and Lumley is a scream.

A corny, cute-enough carpe diem comedy...

The performances are what make Falling for Figaro an entertaining distraction, even as the film plays out exactly as you would expect.

Undemanding rom-com fans and, to a lesser degree, opera lovers, should take some mild pleasure in Falling for Figaro, although the humor isn't of Gilbert and Sullivan proportions.

I must admit it's refreshing to see a plus-size woman not only nab the promotion and the hunky guy, but throw it all away within the first 15 minutes. Unfortunately, my plaudits for "Falling for Figaro" mostly end there.
