It’s the musician biopic with a difference.
The first trailer is out for director Stephen Frears’ “Florence Foster Jenkins” starring Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson, and Nina Arianda.
The true story tale centers on the titular woman, an heiress and socialite, who was an astonishingly terrible opera singer and utterly blind to her own lack of talent. Nevertheless she pursued a career, all while being protected from the truth by her devoted aristocratic English actor-manager (Grant).
Some of the film will revolve around Jenkins’ now legendary public concert at Carnegie Hall in 1944. The film opens May 6th in the U.K. but does not yet have a U.S. release date.
