Pathé has today released the official full trailer for FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS from acclaimed British director Stephen Frears (Philomena, The Queen) and starring Oscar winner Meryl Streep alongside British icon Hugh Grant and The Big Bang Theory’s hilarious Simon Helberg.
It’s full of old English Charm and stiff upper lip and British humour only those of the higher classes can pull off so well.
The comedy drama directed by Stephen Frears (Philomena, The Queen) 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 (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 (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.
FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS will be released in UK cinemas 6th May 2016.
