Mamma Mia! is a 2008 musical romantic-comedy film based on the 2001 Broadway musical of the same name, and inspired by the music of Swedish pop band ABBA. The film follows a soon-to-be-married twenty-year-old girl named Sophie as she tries to find out who her father is before her rapidly-approaching wedding.
The film stars an all-star cast of Meryl Streep, Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, Stellan Skarsgard, Julie Walters, Dominic Cooper, Amanda Seyfried, and Christine Baranski, and features music performed by Swedish pop band ABBA.
