Evidence shows that Meryl Streep is great at everything, but in the upcoming film Florence Foster Jenkins, can Streep be great at being awful? The first trailer is here for the biopic of the world’s worst opera singer, who didn’t know she was the world’s worst opera singer. Meryl Streep plays the endearingly oblivious yet popular performer, who lives for music and truly has no idea that she doesn’t sound good. Hugh Grant plays her supportive husband, and Simon Helberg (The Big Bang Theory) plays her wonderfully named accompanist Cosmé McMoon. The trailer coyly doesn’t give us a chance to hear her really belt it, but here’s what she sounded like. May Florence Foster Jenkins inspire you to follow your dreams.
Watch the film’s teaser, which introduces us to the unique challenge of Meryl trying to be bad at something, below:
