Set in 1940s New York, “FLORENCE FOSTER JENKINS,” from Paramount Pictures, Pathé and BBC Films, is the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite (Meryl Streep) who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice she heard in her head was beautiful, but to everyone else it was hilariously awful. Her “husband” and manager, St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge. The film stars Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson and Nina Arianda.
Produced by Michael Kuhn and Tracey Seaward. Written by Nicholas Martin. Directed by Stephen Frears. Executive Producers Cameron McCracken, Christine Langan and Malcolm Ritchie.
