We are just over 2 months away from the release of Meryl Streep’s new film, Florence Foster Jenkins. It’s already been released just about everyone else, it feels like, but we’re not getting it in North America until August 12th. If you would like to watch some trailers, click here. Basically anything with Streep in it, I will see as she is the best. Here she is joined by Hugh Grant and Simon Helberg so it will be interesting for sure. This one was weird for me though since I started off thinking it was going to go one way, and then it went in another direction. Now, I have some clips of the film I have shared with you below. I can’t wait!
Well-to-do doctor Robert Laing (Tom Hiddleston) moves into the 25th floor of an experimental high-rise apartment complex on the outskirts of London in 1975, attracted by the upper-class lifestyle promoted by its architect named Mr. Royal (Jeremy Irons). The building is secluded from the outside world and functions as its own autonomous community; in addition, it’s organized by a rigid caste system, with the least wealthy residents situated on the lower floors. Laing befriends a documentary filmmaker named Richard Wilder (Luke Evans) who lives on the second floor, and soon becomes aware of the social inequities within the complex. As tensions between the tenants boil over, an all-out war erupts that divides the classes into violent tribes vying for the top floors.
