Florence Foster Jenkins Movie Review
Early in the movie, Cosme McMoon (Simon Helberg) emerges into the streets of 1944’s New York like the cat that ate the canary when he realizes what good fortune he has stumbled onto with Florence Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep). It is at that same time that the movie viewers realize their own good fortune in watching this movie. This movie, like the person Florence Foster Jenkins, is a gem.
Meryl Streep, Simon Helberg, and Hugh Grant, who plays Foster’s “husband” (St. Clair Bayfield) are all delightful. They bring the true to life story to the screen with wit and charm. Florence is a socialite who fancies herself a great singer. Bayfield gives her dreams credence and McMoon is hired to play along (literally and figuratively.) They practice and rehearse so that Foster Jenkins can live her dream and sing at Carnegie Hall.
The movie is full of joy and hope. You will smile and laugh. You will be hard pressed to stay in your seat when Bayfield dances to “Sing, Sing, Sing”. You will most likely sniffle a little bit, too. That’s okay. Florence Foster Jenkins lived her life as she wanted (complete with lots and lots of potato salad!). We should all be so lucky.
