Florence Foster Jenkins

    Plot Summary

    From acclaimed director Stephen Frears (Philomena, The Queen), Meryl Streep stars in the true story of Florence Foster Jenkins, a much-loved New York heiress and socialite who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer.

    Convinced of her own talent, the voice Florence heard in her head was beautiful, while to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her husband, aristocratic actor St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), had protected his beloved from the truth for years. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944, St. Clair knew it was only a matter of time before her beautiful dream would be shattered.

    Funny, moving and featuring a brilliant performance by three-time Academy Award winner Meryl Streep, Florence Foster Jenkins is a fitting tribute to an irrepressible diva whose passion for music was matched only by her determination to share it with the world.
