Don't let the title fool you into thinking this is a Eurovision documentary. While that would be great, this movie is a comedy starring and co-written by Will Ferrell. He and Rachel McAdams play an Icelandic pop art duo, chosen to perform at the annual international competition and struggling with the pressures and expectations that come with honor. Judging by the fake music video released to promote this film, a dream number called "Volcano Man,quot;, Ferrell and his company intend to gently mock Eurovision's theatrical claims without dishonoring what makes its participants so incredible. .

Given how varied and successful the careers of director Joe Wright and actress Keira Knightley have been since they worked together on "Pride and Prejudice," it's easy to forget how brave this adaptation of Jane Austen was in 2005 for both of them. Wright was a novice filmmaker back then, applying an unexpectedly striking visual style to a literary classic; Knightley was a former child actress best known for appearing in expensive blockbusters. Together they created something refreshingly new, signaling the remarkable work they would continue to do, together and separately, for the next 15 years.
