Marguerite is a tone-deaf wealthy music lover who wants to be an opera star. The acting by Ms. Frot in this French drama loosely inspired by the life of 1920s socialite Florence Foster Jenkins, ranks as one of the best performances of the year. It is at once poignant, funny and should not be confused with the recent Stephen Frears biopic.
