Florence Foster Jenkins (out May 5) is based on the true story of the infamous singer who rose to fame in the 1940s because of her awful voice. Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant are fine but relative unknown Simon Helberg steals the show as Jenkins' nervous/giggly pianist. A lot lighter than the similar Marguerite released last month. Grade: B.
