Oscar Movie Review — Florence Foster Jenkins
Nominated for — Best Actress and Costume Design
Plot — NYC heiress Florence Foster Jenkins dreams of singing at Carnegie Hall. Unfortunately, she has a terrible singing voice.
- Hugh Grant plays Meryl Streep’s husband and a total reversal of Hollywood trends he happens to be 11 years her junior rather than the more typical Sean Connery — Cathrine Zeta Jones age gap.
- While La Streep is always great, this movie was… not up to her talents.
- Watching a movie where a mega rich lady is able to pursue a dream she is categorically unsuited for was less entertaining this Feb than it might have been otherwise.
Favorite Quote — “People may say I couldn’t sing, but no one can ever say I didn’t sing.”
Rating — 1 Broken Grammy Award
