- Cast: Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, Simon Helberg
Florence Foster Jenkins (Streep) is a wealthy, cultured New York socialite, who insists on performing as a soprano in spite of a total inability to sing. Streep throws herself endearingly into the role, Grant is wonderful as her debonair husband and Frears keeps a confident balance of uproarious laughs and genuine pathos.

Urban malcontent Ricky (Dennison) reluctantly goes to the NZ countryside with foster aunt Bella (te Wiata) and her gruff husband Hec (Neill).
