Bringing a baby is not compulsory but we cannot guarantee a quiet auditorium during this screening!

Director: Stephen Frears              

Starring: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg

FFJ I have a dream 200 for ws

Florence Foster Jenkins has many strings to her bow: socialite; opera buff; and great wealth to name a few.

The ability to sing, however, is not one of them. Despite this, she has developed a cult following through her exclusive private recitals.

Jenkins finally dares to publicise her supposed talents through a self-promoted show, with the help of her dubious husband, St. Clair Bayfield (Grant) and accompanist Cosmé McMoon (Helberg). The acknowledgement she receives however is not of the nature she expects.

The real Florence Foster Jenkins

Streep gives a vibrant, and typically masterful performance as the self-deceiving Jenkins in this tragicomedy, with Grant also on top form.
