Awesome / Florence Foster Jenkins

Go To

  • Agnes, of all people, silencing everyone in Carnegie Hall to stand up for Florence and silence the hecklers, giving the singer the opportunity to continue her concert. It's interesting because when she first heard her, Agnes laughed so hard she had to be dragged out of there. But having poor Florence be embarrassed at Carnegie Hall? That's where this showgirl draws the line.
  • This whole movie is a meta-moment of Awesome for Meryl Streep - you have to be a pretty good singer to begin with, to learn to sing that poorly.
    • In a similar vein, all that excellent piano work throughout the film? That really is Simon Helberg.

How well does it match the trope?
