After receiving news of the death of his old friend Alfredo (Philippe Noiret), a famous movie director returns to his home village after spending 30 years away.

SYNOPSIS

Meryl Streep stars in the eponymous role of this comedy drama based on the true story of the American opera singer. World renowned as a virtuosic pianist, Florence Foster Jenkins has a new dream: to become a famous opera singer. Her voice, however, leaves a lot to be desired and she becomes famous for her lack of talent. Despite the constant criticism from her peers and audiences which Florence's manager and partner St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant) endeavours to keep from her, Florence battles on and, with St. Clair's help, she conquers the New York stage to become a household name. The film was nominated for four Golden Globe Awards including Best Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical, Best Performance By an Actor in a Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical (Grant) and Best Performance By an Actress in a Motion Picture - Comedy Or Musical (Streep).
