Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant star in Florence Foster Jenkins, a film based on the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great opera singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her “husband” and manager, St Clair Bayfield, an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence 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.
The film, which is currently shooting now in the UK, is directed by Stephen Frears from a screenplay by Nicholas Martin. The cast also includes Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson and Nina Arianda.
