Florence Foster Jenk­ins

TV & Satellite Week - - Films - 2016, PG,110MIN

Wealthy 1940s New York so­cialite Florence Foster Jenk­ins has gone down in his­tory as the worst opera singer ever, yet in di­rec­tor Stephen Frears’ ten­der, warm-hearted biopic she proves to be far more than a fig­ure of fun as she pur­sues her mu­si­cal dreams. Meryl Streep is a joy, re­pro­duc­ing the hideous racket Florence made with im­pres­sive fi­delity, while Hugh Grant is typ­i­cally droll as her loyal part­ner, St Clair Bay­field, the failed English ac­tor who man­aged her ama­teur ca­reer.
