Storyline
The screenplay was inspired by the incredible life story of Florence Foster Jenkins, an eccentric American amateur operatic soprano who stubbornly followed her dream to become a star. And though she had no ear for music, with little sense of pitch or rhythm, the notorious socialite could not be dissuaded by her husband or friends. She fulfilled a lifelong dream performing to a full house at Carnegie Hall in New York.
