Eurovision Movie

The movie premiered on 26 June 2020 on Netflix.

Music meets comedy meets romance. Those are the ingredients that build the very first movie inspired in music's biggest competition, the Eurovision Song Contest.

The adventure began during the Eurovision Song Contest 2018 when the North-American actor, Will Ferrell, travelled to Lisbon to witness and live the madness of the contest. After many asked what the three-time Golden Globe winner was doing in Eurovision, it was later confirmed: a movie about the show was in the making.

The story is focused on two Icelandic musicians Lars Erickssong (Will Ferrell) and Sigrit Ericksdottir (Rachel McAdams) who are given the chance to represent their country, Iceland, in the Eurovision Song Contest.

The underdogs come up against serious competitors including Russian singer, Alexander Lemtov.
