PREVIEW SCREENING & LIVE EVENT
Florence Foster Jenkins with Hugh Grant in person
With Hugh Grant in person
Dir. Stephen Frears. 2016, 110 mins. DCP courtesy of Paramount Pictures. With Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant. Set in 1940s New York, Stephen Frears’s enthralling new film Florence Foster Jenkins tells the true story of the legendary New York heiress and socialite (Meryl Streep) who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer despite the fact that her voice was hilariously awful. In one of his finest, funniest, and most touching performances, Hugh Grant plays her husband and manager St. Clair Bayfield, an aristocratic English actor, who is determined to protect his beloved Florence from the truth. But when Florence decided to give a public concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair knows that he faces his greatest challenge.
