I can’t wait to see it!! I loved the play and the movie has Colin Firth, Meryl Streep and Julie Walters. Can’t miss it. Click on the pictures to watch the trailer.
Update: Just got back from the movie theatre. Alan and I LOVED the movie. I was afraid it wouldn’t be as funny as the play but I’m happy to say that I was wrong. It was quite entertaining and there were many moments when the audience clapped, sniffled, and clapped again. Meryl Streep’s performance of the The Winner Takes it All was one of the most emotionally-charged scenes I’ve seen in a long time. I had tears in my eyes and when I looked at the woman sitting beside me, she was sobbing. Now I’m seating on the couch listening to ABBA at full volume. Good thing I live in the gay village… I really want to see the movie again! The mission now is to try to convince a friend who doesn’t like ABBA that she has to see it… Such a feel-good movie.
