Ahead of the 29th Tokyo International Film Festival (TIFF) opening events on Tuesday October 25, a press conference for this year’s Opening Film, Florence Foster Jenkins, was held on October 24 (Mon), welcoming Oscar-winning star Meryl Streep.
Florence Foster Jenkins is based on the true story of an endearing diva who became a legend when she attracted a full house at New York’s Carnegie Hall, despite being a terrible singer.
Stephen Frears, director of The Queen and Philomena, teams up with Meryl Streep and Hugh Grant for his latest film.
Meryl Streep will appear on the Red Carpet and attend the Opening Ceremony to be held tomorrow, October 25.
The 29th TIFF will take place from October 25 to November 3, 2016 at Roppongi Hills, EX Theater Roppongi and other venues in Tokyo.
