With a little over two weeks to go before its UK release, a behind the scenes featurette has arrived online for the upcoming biographical comedy drama Florence Foster Jenkins which features interviews with stars Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant and Simon Helberg and director Stephen Frears; take a look below after the official synopsis…
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.
Florence Foster Jenkins is set for release on May 6th in the UK and features a cast that also includes Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg, Rebecca Ferguson and Nina Arianda.
