Meryl Streep has shown she can carry a tune in several films including Into The Woods, Mamma Mia, Ricki and the Flash and Death Becomes Her to name a few. For her latest film, she plays the titular role in Florence Foster Jenkins.
The American socialite turned amateur operatic singer is dubbed the worst opera singer of all time. She was often ridiculed for her lack of rhythm, pitch, tone and her aberrant pronunciation. Despite that, she never waivered on pursuing her dream. Hugh Grant steps in to play her agent turned common-law husband, Clair Bayfeld.
Florence Foster Jenkins doesn’t have a US date yet, but will hit theaters on May 6, 2016 in the UK. Check out the first teaser trailer below. There’s no audio yet of Streep ‘singing,’ but I added an audio clip of the real Jenkins for your listening pleasure.
