Watch: Teaser Trailer for Stephen Frears' 'Florence Foster Jenkins'
"You have to hear it to believe it!" The first teaser trailer has debuted online for Stephen Frears' next film, Florence Foster Jenkins, following his work on The Program (watch the latest trailer for that here). In this film, Meryl Streep plays Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York heiress who dreamed of becoming an opera singer despite having a terrible singing voice. Hugh Grant also stars, and the cast includes Rebecca Ferguson, John Kavanagh, Simon Helberg, and plenty others. Florence Foster Jenkins is already a popular person, as her can't-really-sing story is similar to the one in the film Marguerite. This movie seems to embrace the absurd fun of the whole story, and it looks like Meryl Streep is at her finest as always. Enjoy.
Here's the first teaser trailer for Stephen Frears' Florence Foster Jenkins, originally from Telegraph:
Florence Foster Jenkins is the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great opera 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, 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. The film is directed by Stephen Frears from a screenplay by Nicholas Martin. The cast includes Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson and Nina Arianda. Being produced by Michael Kuhn for Qwerty Films and by Tracey Seaward. The film opens in the UK this May. Paramount will release Florence Foster Jenkins in the US, but no date is set yet.
