"Florence Foster Jenkins" hits the high notes with the costumes, the 1940's setting, story, and the warmhearted elements of the film. Especially the performance from Meryl Streep and Simon Helberg who were both excellent in the movie. But Hugh Grant I thought was the most emotional part of the film.

Bad editing, energy was lacking, and the film making isn't that special. A decent film with three knock out performances.
