Film Review: Meryl Streep in ‘Florence Foster Jenkins’

13 April 2016 12:00 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

The show’s not over ’til the flat lady sings in “Florence Foster Jenkins,” Stephen Frears’ bright, bubbly and suitably ear-bursting biopic of surely the least gifted chanteuse ever to sell out Carnegie Hall. She sings rather early on, however, leaving Frears and screenwriter Nicholas Martin with few dramatic or comedic cards to play for the pic’s remaining 90 minutes — beyond the admittedly delicious spectacle of the ever-game Meryl Streep taking a musical meat cleaver to respectable operetta. Less rich and less rounded than “Marguerite,” the recent French arthouse hit drawn from Jenkins’ story, this good-humored confection — slyly fashioned as a reproach to more discerning culture critics — will nonetheless strike a chord with auds who thrilled to Streep’s comparably high-camp impersonation of Julia Child. Seventy-two years after her passing, expect Jenkins’ name to sell out a few more theaters from beyond the grave.

Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant lead the cast of the Stephen Frears directed film which focusses the true events of the latter days of America socialite, Florence Foster Jenkins. Here’s our Florence Foster Jenkins review.

Stephen Frears’ follow-up movie to last year’s impressive biopic The Program could not be any different, and here he teams with Nicholas Martin, a successful television writer behind episodes of Midsomer Murders, Soldier Soldier and Dalziel & Pascoe, for an brilliantly funny romp set in New York City towards the end of the second World War.

Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep) was known for her very off-key performances as an opera singer, her appearances on-stage fully financed from her fortune left to her by her late father. At »
