In 1940s New York, Florence Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep), a New York heiress and socialite, 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.

"With Streep on grandstanding form and Grant given a rare chance to show his range, this is an intelligent dramedy that moves and amuses."
- Jamie Graham, Total Film
"his is a fine, funny and moving film tribute to the efforts and passions of its titular heroine, a woman who lived out her dreams, at any price."
- Jason Solomons, TheWrap
"Bouquets all round: Stephen Frears goes broad in Florence Foster Jenkins, and the appeal should be wide."
- Fionnuala Halligan, Screen International
"With Streep on grandstanding form and Grant given a rare chance to show his range, this is an intelligent dramedy that moves and amuses."
- Jamie Graham, Total Film
"An audience picture first and foremost: one wholly sympathetic to its eponymous subject's delusional drive to delight crowds with or without the requisite artistry."
- Guy Lodge, Variety
"There's a deceptively masterful simplicity to Frears' direction. In this age of blockbusters and superhero face-off mayhem, it reminds us that unfussiness is a virtue."
- Jason Solomons, TheWrap
