Meryl Streep as "Florence Foster Jenkins!"

08.08.2016 – The biographical comedy-drama film “Florence Foster Jenkins” inspired by true events is something Meryl Streep would dive in as the leading role. The story of a New York heiress who became an opera singer known for her painful lack of singing skills is something an interesting life story for Ms Jenkins.

Besides Streep in the role of this diva you also got Hugh Grant from the direction of Stephen Frears with this slice of life-kind of narrative that would be something for those looking for a good humor at the same time some inspiration...

From Stephen Frears, the director of “The Queen” and “Philomena” comes an unforgettable heart warming and funny story that will bring the audience to tears in “Florence Foster Jenkins,” the inspiring true story of the eponymous New York heiress who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. Starring two of the best 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 (“The Queen,” “The King’s Speech”) who incorporates wonderful music from popular songs to golden classics.

“Florence Foster Jenkins” opens August 24, 2016 from OctoArts Films International.
