Xavier Giannoli’s “Marguerite” premiered to rave reviews at both the Telluride and Venice Film Festival last year. The movie is loosely inspired by the life of Florence Foster Jenkins, an American socialite who was ridiculed for her poor singing ability. Catherine Frot stars in the titular role, and she’s accompanied by André Marcon, Michel Fau, Christa Théret and Denis Mpunga.

The film is set during the 1920s in Paris, as a wealthy women spends most of her time singing opera and performing in elaborate costumes. Marguerite is an enthusiastic performer, but she is also terribly and comically out of tune. She eventually is deluded into thinking that she’s a talented diva.

“Marguerite” will be released in New York this April. No other release date information has been set. Watch the debut trailer above.
