I watched the movie last year it was a 2017 Movies for Grownup selection. It was informative and enjoyable.

Just watched the movie last night, and enjoyed it very much. There's a reason Meryl Streep is always getting nominated for awards, she's just outstanding, as usual. It's based on a true story about New York socialite, a patron of the arts, who loves music, and whose heart's desire was to sing and entertain. It's cute and funny, touching and heartwarming. I give it two thumbs up!! 

 

I'm not very good with reviews, so here is link to more information . . .

As I'm thinking about this flick, I'm thinking about how we Americans gave each other leeway and support in this era more so than we do now. Or so it seems.

Hi @MaVolta, nice to see you here. 

 

We watched this movie on DVD a little while ago and absolutely adored it. Meryl gave a Meryl performance (Can you get a titch bored with perfection, I wonder?) Hugh Grant was also spectacular.
