FFJ to the Mic, Please...FFJ to the Mic

Music was her life.

All she wanted to do was hold 3,000 people in the cup of her hand.

Too bad she couldn’t really sing.

I’m talking about Florence Foster Jenkins, a New York heiress who had dreams of becoming a famous opera singer, this in spite of being woefully untalented, and the subject of Stephen FrearsMeryl Streep-starring upcoming offering, the aptly titled Florence Foster Jenkins.

The film – which co-stars Hugh Grant as St. Clair Bayfield, Jenkins’ English actor-live-in partner/manager, Simon Helberg (TV’s The Big Bang Theory), and Tony winner Nina Arianda – is due out in the U.K. on May 6.

No word of an American opening date yet, but you know it’s coming. This, after all, is a Meryl vehicle. You know they’ll factor it into this year’s awards season in one way or another.
