It's the kind of movie that feels and sounds like a summer vacation should – fizzy, lively, low-stakes and scored by ABBA.This all-inclusive resort has Cher, Andy Garcia and Colin Firth playing Leonardo DiCaprio to Stellan Skarsgard's Kate Winslet at the bow of a boat packed to the gills with a mass of people singing "Dancing Queen".The real reason this bonkers movie works so well is the incandescent Lily James. She plays a younger Donna (who 40 years later is played by Meryl Streep), during a very eventful summer in 1979 where she both finds her calling and meets (and sleeps with) the three men who all could very possibly be the father of her daughter, Sophie (Amanda Seyfried).Seyfried is good, if underserved, and her story picks up considerably when Tanya (Christine Baranski) and Rosie (Julie Walters) arrive, but it's the '79 portion you want to keep going back to (at least until Cher shows up for the last 10 minutes).
