From Stephen Frears, director of The Queen and Philomena, comes an unforgettable heartwarming and funny story that will bring the audience to tears.
Florence Foster Jenkins is the inspiring true story of the eponymous New York heiress who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. Starring two of the well loved actors worldwide, Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant, the film celebrates the human spirit, the power of music, and the passion of amateurs everywhere.
The voice Florence (Streep) heard in her head was divine, but to the rest of the world it was hilariously awful. At private recitals, her devoted husband and manager, St. Claire Bayfield (Grant) realized he had perhaps bitten off more than he could chew.
Florence Foster Jenkins score is composed by Alexandre Desplat who incorporates wonderful music, from popular songs to golden classics.
Florence Foster Jenkins opens Aug. 24 from OctoArts Films International. Trailer link: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pAsgjz3wcGg
