About the Film
“An absolutely hilarious, rousing and joyous celebration that ought to have you dancing in the aisles.” – Hollywood.com
Set on the colorful Greek island of Kalokairi, the plot serves as a background for a wealth of ABBA songs. A young woman about to be married (Amanda Seyfried) discovers one of three men could be her father. She invites all three to the wedding without telling her mother, Donna, (Meryl Streep) who was once the lead singer of Donna and the Dynamos. The men quickly surmise the reason they were invited, each believing he is indeed Sophie’s father. As complications ensue from the misunderstandings, Sophie and Sky’s wedding and relationship may be jeopardized.

A wine of rare elegance and finesse with distinctive mineral hints and delicate aromas of citrus – lime and grapefruit – which are highlighted by light floral notes.

Marathon Beer Marathon is the Greek lager beer that immediately attracts the consumer with its full and pleasant taste. Its history began in 1971, when the brand, taking its name from the famous Marathon run (initially run by the ancient messenger Feidippides in 490 BC and still an Olympic sport), was produced in Greece to reach the furthest parts of the world. Marathon is a lager beer, with 5% alcohol content, distinctive packaging and easy to drink, pleasant taste. It is made from high quality natural raw materials (barley malt, yeast, hops and water) and today it can be found in many countries throughout the world, such as the USA, Canada, France, Italy, Australia, Israel and more.
