Florence Foster Jenkins soundtrack / WFMT: Featured Release
"Florence Foster Jenkins" is the film directed by Stephen Frears which tells the true story of the eponymous New York heiress who obsessively pursued her dream of becoming a great singer. The voice Florence (Meryl Streep) heard in her head was divine, but to the rest of the world it was hilariously awful. In addition to Streep's meticulously executed vocal performances, the original soundtrack features a score by Alexandre Desplat. Soprano Aida Garifullina makes a cameo as Lily Pons.
