FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS
NOW PLAYING

0005_florence_foster_jenkinsSet in 1940s New York, Florence Foster Jenkins is the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite (Meryl Streep) who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her “husband” and manager, St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge.

REVIEWS:

“Stephen Frears’s enjoyable, sentimental biopic gives Streep a role to relish, while Hugh Grant provides a touching foil in a genuine paean to mediocrity.” –Peter Bradshaw, The Guardian

“Stephen Frears’s bright, bubbly and suitably ear-bursting biopic of surely the least gifted chanteuse ever to sell out Carnegie Hall.” –Guy Lodge, Variety

“A fizzy, funny, period dramedy with top-notch performances, ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’ doesn’t take many risks but it’s a very entertaining experience. And yes, she was that bad.” –Anna Smith, Empire
