Unable to complete challenge.

I have been trying to complete the first challenge and no luck.

from sqlalchemy import create_engine, Column, Integer, String
from sqlalchemy.ext.declarative import declarative_base
from sqlalchemy.orm import sessionmaker

engine = create_engine(โ€˜sqlite:///movies.dbโ€™, echo=False)
Session = sessionmaker(bind=engine)
session = Session()
Base = declarative_base()

class Movie(Base):
    __tablename__ = โ€˜moviesโ€™

    id = Column(Integer, primary_key=True)
    movie_title = Column(String)
    genre = Column(String)

# Write your code below
romance_movies = session.query(Movie).filter(Movie.genre == 'Romance')

Someone had the exact same issue just last week!

I'll repeat what I told them: Based on the Regex error shown on the Test Results tab, the challenge apparently doesn't like the "Movie." prefix or the spaces in the filter expression. You can change those to pass the challenge, but you might also want to report this as a bug to the Support folks.
