Florence Foster Jenkins, an eccentric socialite, lives under the delusion that she is an enchanting coloratura soprano when she is actually incapable of holding pitch. After teaming up with a pianist she begins to hold recitals that spark a cultish following of faux fans around New York in the 1930s and 40s. Based on a true story, this beautiful comedy pierces the heart of the hopeful artist that lives in all of us.“A beguiling comic jewel with a heart.” —Variety.
