Synopsis

The bizarre career of Florence Foster Jenkins — a socialite who fancied herself an opera singer and, through an awfulness that curdled into a kind of cult, achieved dubious cult fame from 1932 to her sold-out Carnegie Hall swan song in 1944 — is viewed in flashback, replete with accompaniment by her equally mundane pianist.
