Florence Foster Jenkins

Watch Now


FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS starring Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant is a comedy drama directed by Stephen Frears (Philomena, The Queen) telling the inspirational true story of the eponymous New York heiress who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. 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 Clair Bayfield (Grant), managed to protect Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give her first public concert at New York's Carnegie Hall, St Clair realised he had perhaps bitten off more than he could chew.

The film's supporting cast members include Simon Helberg (The Big Bang Theory) as Florence's long suffering piano accompanist, Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) and Nina Arianda (Midnight in Paris).
