Florence Foster Jenkins to play for Tuesday Night at the Movies
There will be several films shown at the library this summer, and our “Tuesday Night at the Movies” first pic is “Florence Foster Jenkins” starring Meryl Streep which will be screened at 6:30 p.m. on July 18th. This is the hilarious story of Mrs. Jenkins, a New York socialite who dreams of becoming a great opera singer. The incredible true tale describes the beautiful voice she hears in her head, but to everyone else it is completely awful – however her husband, St. Clair Bayfield (Hugh Grant) – is determined to protect his beloved wife from the truth. A huge concert at Carnegie Hall poses him his greatest challenge to make sure Florence’s performance is a rousing success. You should really enjoy this fun comedy, which is rated PG-13 “for brief suggestive material” and the running time is 110 minutes.
