Netflix movies and shows: Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga

If you’re looking for something to lift up your spirits and give you some hope, you have to watch Eurovision Song Contest: The Story of Fire Saga. If nothing else, it will have you singing the songs for at least a week after you finish the movie.

The movie stars Will Farrell, Rachel McAdams, Dan Stevens, and Pierce Brosnan and follows Lars and Sigrit who perform as Fire Saga. It’s Lars’s dream to represent Iceland at the Eurovision song contest. At first, they don’t make the cut, but when tragedy hits, they get the spot to show off their talent.

But once they get there, it’s not everything they dreamed of. Some of the other contestants are conniving and befriend them for some not-so-great reasons. Lars and Sigrit’s friendship also takes a hit when they realize they don’t actually have the same goals. The people who work on the contest also try to turn them into something they aren’t.

This leads them to splitting up, but eventually, they come together for the performance of their lives. Honestly, this last performance makes the movie worth watching. If it doesn’t at least make you smile, I don’t know what to tell you.

As this is a Will Farrell film, there is also plenty of slapstick comedy and a ton of laughs, and as always, Rachel McAdams is brilliant. It isn’t actually her voice doing the singing, but she makes you believe it is which is not easy to do.

If you missed watching this when it came on Netflix on June 26, now is your chance to check it out.
