Meryl Streep has proven with Into The Woods and Ricki and the Flash that she can easily carry a tune, but in her new film Florence Foster Jenkins she’s singing a different tune. The film, directed by Stephen Frears (The Program, The Grifters), is the true story of the titular protagonist, a New York socialite who believes she has a beautiful voice.

Unfortunately, Florence Foster Jenkins was not blessed with a melodious tone, and it’s up to St. Clair Baufield (Hugh Grant), her husband and manager, to make sure she doesn’t fall flat on her face when she holds a public concert at Carnegie Hall. The film, co-starring Rebecca Ferguson, who made quite a splash last year in Mission: Impossible 6, and Simon Helberg, opens August 12. Check out the trailer below and tell us what you think!
