Gut-bustingly funny, this comedic gem features virtuoso performances by Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant and Simon Helberg in the true story of Florence Foster Jenkins.
Jenkins was the New York heiress, socialite and patron of the arts who absolutely loved to sing despite the fact that she could not carry a tune. With the help of her longtime life partner St. Clair Bayfield (a very memorable Grant) and talented pianist Cosme McMoon (hilariously portrayed by Helberg), Jenkins performed throughout the 1930s for select audiences that included Cole Porter and other luminaries of the New York musical scene. Meryl Streep presents yet another award-worthy performance in this pitch-perfect comedy that proves truth is stranger than fiction.
