Meryl Streep, who has been celebrated for her vocal talents in films like Mamma Mia and Into the Woods, returns to the screen as an obsessive, delusional talentless diva with big dreams. Hugh Grant shines in his role as her partner St Clair Bayfield. This is the second film inspired by the real-life story of the eponymous New York heiress and socialite who bought her way to Carnegie Hall.

Directed by Stephen Frears (The Queen, Philomena), the film celebrates the human spirit, the power of music and the passion of amateurs everywhere.
