    I can't believe Meryl got an Oscar nom for this over Amy Adams and Annette Bening. 7 years 4 months ago

    Somewhat repetitive, yet quite entertaining.

    Agnes Stark (Nina Arianda) absolutely steals every scene she's in.

    The reactions of Cosme McMoon (Simon Helberg) to Florence's vocal abilities are also fantastic.

    Florence Foster Jenkins is sweet and often witty biopic about the grande dame of deluded bad singing who somehow charmed audiences with mere enthusiasm back in the 1940s. An eccentric not unlike Ed Wood, her story plays as tragi-comedy, infused with humanity by some excellent performances by, yes okay, Meryl Streep, but perhaps more memorably by Hugh Grant (and ambiguous character who managed to break my heart) and Simon Helberg (who may just steal the show). Very funny supporting work from Nina Arianda as well, as a non-fan who may just find what it is that makes Florence Foster Jenkins something special. But at its heart, this is more a story about mental illness than vanity, so one should temper one's laughs. We get to hear the real Foster Jenkins at the end and guess what, Streep still can't (or won't) sing as badly. 7 years 11 months ago
