@RebeccasOffice Movie Review – Florence Foster Jenkins

Florence Foster Jenkins

Florence Foster Jenkins

I love movies that are true stories or depictions.  They help me to enjoy the cornucopia of people in this world.  Mind you I am not a Meryl Streep fan, but this was awesome.  I actually went t the theater in the middle of the afternoon and there were maybe a half dozen people in the audience.  The movie is about an eccentric woman from the early 1900s who helped patronize the New York theater scene.I actually know many people like her in my life as I am sure you do too.  Here is someone who thinks highly of herself, but is so out of touch with the rest of the world that she has no idea how people perceive her.  Normally we’d all look at her and despise her, but in this case you really come to appreciate and through understanding, accept and applaud this woman.

Florence Foster Jenkins is a film that also captures the modern world of social media and real world culture.  We are all too familiar these days with these televised talent shows where normal people sing for celebrity judges and come to the harsh realization that they are not as good as they sound..

I was even inspired to look up more about her true life story.  There is a whole documentary on her on Youtube and you can hear her real recordings as narrated by friends.

I highly recommend seeing this in the theater and watch it as if you are at a concert.  See if you can stop from snickering, or laugh just like everyone else.  It is so funny.  The guy from Big Bang Theory was my favorite.  5 erections for this one for sure!!
