About

Three-time Academy Award Winner Meryl Streep stars in the touching true story of Florence Foster Jenkins.

On worldwide release from May, the Stephen Frears (Philomena; The Queen; High Fidelity) directed film also stars Hugh Grant as Florence’s husband and Simon Helberg (Big Bang Theory) as her long-suffering accompanist Cosme McMoon.

Meryl Streep recreates the extraordinary and hilarious singing of Florence Foster Jenkins (1868-1944), the wealthy American heiress whose excruciating sense of pitch and rhythm were immortalised on a set of treasured 78 rpm discs. Streep and Helberg have meticulously studied these original recordings to bring them vividly back to life. Be prepared to laugh and cry!

Original score by Academy Award Winner Alexandre Desplat (The Grand Budapest Hotel)

And introducing Decca Classics star soprano Aida Garifullina in a stunning cameo role as the legendary diva Lily Pons
