Florence Foster Jenkins

Paramount Pictures has released the first trailer for Florance Foster Jenkins. Directed by Stephen Frears (High Fidelity), the film centers on the title character (Meryl Streep) as a New York socialite who believes she has a singing voice while everyone else around her knows otherwise. Her “husband” and manager, St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant), an aristocratic English actor, was determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. And when the time comes for Jenkins to give a performance at the concert hall, it may be time for Bayfield to stop shielding her.

Check out the trailer below.

Grant plays the leading man role in a rom-com role quite well. It’s not like we’ve never seen him in this role before. But he sure does know how to turn on the charm on the big screen.

Florance Foster Jenkins should provide nice counter-programming to the summer movie season that is chalk full of action tentpoles. The film will be released alongside such films as the Seth Rogen animated comedy Sausage Party, Disney’s reimagining of Pete’s Dragon, and after WB’s Suicide Squad. With that kind of competition, it’s unlikely it will be able to keep up at the box office with those major titles. Still, if anyone needs a break from summer blockbusters, then this could just be the film they need. The fact that the film is also based on a true story might appeal to a certain audience. Then there is that feel good factor that was seen in Frears’ Philomena.

The film also stars Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson, and Nina Arianda.

Florence Foster Jenkins opens in theaters August 12th.

Here’s the official synopsis:

The true story of Florence Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep), the legendary New York heiress and socialite 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 in 1944, St Clair knew he faced his greatest challenge.
