ANGELIKA’S NOTE

Academy Award winner Meryl Streep is 1940s New York heiress FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS, from award winning director Stephen Frears (THE QUEEN, PHILOMENA). Despite an always-off-key singing voice, Florence's passion drives her to become an opera singer. When she announces her plans to sing at Carnegie Hall, her husband St. Clair (Hugh Grant) goes to extreme lengths to make sure she never becomes aware that the angelic voice she hears in her head lacks any resemblance to the voice people hear when she sings. Also starring Rebecca Ferguson (MISSION: IMPOSSIBLE - ROGUE NATION) and Simon Helberg (THE BIG BANG THEORY). The New Yorker raves, "Streep is right there, solidly invested in the folly of Florence's dreams. When she declares that 'music has been, and is, my life,' you believe her."
