From acclaimed director Stephen Frears (Philomena, The Queen), Meryl Streep stars in the true story of Florence Foster Jenkins, a 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 hilarious and awful. Her husband and manager, aristocratic English actor St Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), was determined to protect his beloved from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944, St Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge yet. Funny, moving and featuring a brilliant lead performance by Meryl Streep, Florence Foster Jenkins is as exuberant and charming as the irrepressible diva who inspired the film.

Inspired by the life of Florence Foster Jenkins. 1921, the beginning of the Golden Twenties. Not far from Paris it is party day at Marguerite Dumont’s castle.

Nobody knows much about this woman except that she is rich and that her whole life is devoted to her passion: music. Marguerite sings. She sings wholeheartedly, but she sings terribly out of tune.

When a young, provocative journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance, Marguerite starts to believe even further in her talent. This gives her the courage she needs to follow her dream. Despite her husband’s reluctance, and with the help of a has-been divo, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers
