Based on the true story of a notoriously talentless singer in 1940s Manhattan, Meryl Streep plays a delusional diva who dreams of playing Carnegie Hall, in this warm-hearted celebration from Stephen Frears (Director of Philomena & The Queen). Hugh Grant plays the long-suffering but devoted husband. Streep plays a New York socialite and eager patron of the arts whose enthusiasm for a good tune is matched only by her inability to sing one: not that it stops her from trying.
