Streep’s Florence Foster Jenkins set for May release

Meryl Streep’s latest film, about a New York heiress who dreamed of being an opera singer – despite having a terrible voice, will be released in the UK in May.

Streep stars as the eponymous Florence whose voice in her head was divine, but to the rest of the world was hilariously awful.

Hugh Grant co-stars as Florence’s devoted husband and manager, St Clair Bayfield who managed to protect Florence from the truth.

But when Florence decided to give her first public concert at New York’s Carnegie Hall, St Clair realised he had perhaps bitten off more than he could chew.

The film is directed by Stephen Frears and co-stars Simon Helberg (The Big Bang Theory) as Florence’s long suffering piano accompanist, Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation) and Nina Arianda (Midnight in Paris).

It will be released in the UK on May 6.
