Posted on

Florence Foster Jenkins is getting an encore. 

Paramount Pictures announced Tuesday that it will re-release the critically-acclaimed film starring Meryl Streep, Hugh Grant, and Simon Helberg in select theaters next month. 

Directed by Stephen Frears, Florence Foster Jenkins is based on the true story of the titular New York City socialite (played by Streep) who passionately pursues her dreams of being an opera singer despite having a complete lack of talent. The film recently won Grant the Hollywood Supporting Actor honor at the Hollywood Film Awards, while Helberg received the Virtuosos Award at the Santa Barbara Film Festival for his breakout performance. The movie was originally released in August and has grossed $27 million to date.

The film will be re-released in select theaters in New York, Chicago, Los Angeles, Boston, and more on Dec. 2, with a DVD release date set for Dec. 13.
