Florence Foster Jenkins - Movie Synopsis & Plot

Set in 1940s New York, Florence Foster Jenkins is the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite (Meryl Streep) who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great 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 (Hugh Grant), 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, St. Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge.

MOVIE REVIEW

Entertaining but inconsequential, Florence Foster Jenkins stars Meryl Streep as a socialite-performer notorious for her horrible singing (and for being oblivious to how bad she is). Funny until you realize the joke is a real person, the movie basically serves as an opportunity for Streep to play a caricature on her way to an undeserved Oscar nomination.
