Full film details

"People may say I can't sing, but no one can ever say I didn't sing.”

Florence Foster Jenkins follows the life of the famously tone-deaf soprano, who attracted much attention throughout her career as a singer, much for the wrong reasons.

Upon turning her ear to the vocal side of music in her early 40s, her husband and manager, St. Clair Bayfield, is determined to protect her from the truthful and hilarious nature of her performances.

Until now, Bayfield’s job as been relatively easy, as Jenkins’ status as a socialite meant that the large crowds at performances were mostly by invitation only, excluding professional critics and the press.

Aged 76, even her kind-hearted husband can’t keep her from yielding to public demand, as she agrees to perform at none other than Carnegie Hall. With tickets selling out weeks in advance and critics in full attendance, Jenkins’ limited vocal range is about to be projected onto the biggest audience of her career.

Meryl Streep (The Iron Lady) takes on the role of Florence herself, while the film also stars Hugh Grant (The Man from U.N.C.L.E.) as her husband and Simon Helberg (The Big Bang Theory) as Jenkins’ accompanist, Cosmé McMoon.
