Florence Foster Jenkins DVD|
FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS is the inspirational true story of the eponymous New York heiress and socialite who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice Florence (Meryl Streep) heard in her head was divine, but to the rest of the world it was hilariously awful. At private recitals, her devoted husband and manager, St Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), managed to protect Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give her first public concert at New York's Carnegie Hall, St Clair realised he had perhaps bitten off more than he could chew. The comedy drama directed by Stephen Frears (Philomena, The Queen) celebrates the human spirit, the power of music and the passion of amateurs everywhere.from£5.99 | RRP:

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), four BAFTAs including Best Leading Actress (Streep) and Best Supporting Actor (Grant), and two Academy Awards, including Best Actress (Streep).
