Gimme! Gimme! Gimme! a screening of Mamma Mia!, the feel-good hit of the century that showcases the vocal prowess of Meryl Streep, Christine Baranski, Julie Walters, and Amanda Seyfriend. Join We Really Like Her! co-hosts Emily and Danita as they sing and dance those March (a.k.a Second Winter) blues away. Goodbye brown slush, hello Greek island.


Directed by Phyllida Lloyd and based on the iconic songs of ABBA, this musical follows bride-to-be Sophie (Seyfried) after she secretly invites three men (Pierce Brosnan, Colin Firth, and Stellan Skarsgård) to her wedding in hopes of figuring out who her father is. Forced to confront her past and the state of her crumbling inn, Sophie’s mother Donna (Streep) relies on her two best friends, the Dynamos (Baranski and Walters), to keep her afloat.


One of the highest-grossing films of 2008 (and to this day, remains one of the all-time top earners featuring women over 50), Mamma Mia! proved for the umpteenth time that films by and for women can be just as much of a box office draw as any other big studio blockbuster. A celebration of friendship and pop music, it’s an endlessly rewatchable comfort movie. - EMILY GAGNE & DANITA STEINBERG
