A dressage moment in the movie Florence Foster Jenkins

Those of you who have SEEN FFJ are wondering what the heck they missed. A dressage moment in Florence Foster Jenkins?

Not strictly dressage maybe, but a statement that I loved -- it came at the very, very end, when FFJ (Meryl Streep) is gravely ill and talking to St. Clair (Hugh Grant). She describes her musical critics, and what they say about her. I love what she says. 

No spoilers! So I can't tell you exactly what she said.

But in the very end of the movie FJF says something. Take out the word "sing" and insert the word "ride."

It's a wonderful sentiment, and it makes me smile...


  1. I agree 100%! I went to the see the movie (in part because of your recommendation) and loved it. Who knows if those really were FFJ's last words, but how lovely if they were. ;)

  2. I heard the movie is really good. I can't wait to see it.
