If you have never heard of the extraordinary tale of Florence Foster Jenkins you have to. An amazing woman of incredible talent. That being said it is wildly known she was one of the worst singers every to tread the boards at Carnegie Hall…
The comedy drama directed by Stephen Frears tells the inspirational true story of the eponymous New York heiress who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The film celebrates the human spirit, the power of music and the passion of amateurs everywhere.
The voice Florence 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, 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.
