The Next Best Picture Podcast – “Florence Foster Jenkins”

By Matt Neglia 

Our 2016 retrospective continues as we attempt to cover a few missing podcast reviews which we did not complete the year the site launched. This will culminate in NBP Film Community Awards and awards voted on by the staff. Next up is our review of “Florence Foster Jenkins” starring Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant & Simon Helberg. Based on a true story and directed by Academy Award nominee Stephen Frears (“The Queen” & “Philomena”), the film is a delightful piece of entertainment, hoisted up by its main trio of performances. What did we think of it though? What did we think of the film’s awards season run which resulted in Meryl Streep’s 20th Oscar nomination but left Hugh Grant on the sidelines? Tune in to find out all of this and more in our review. Joining me for this podcast retrospective review I have Amanda Spears, Dan Bayer & Ryan C. ShowersAlso check out our previous 2016 reviews of “20th Century Women,” “Paterson,” “Captain Fantastic,” “Hail, Caesar!” & “The Handmaiden.” Thanks!
