Cover your ears but open your hearts for Marguerite.

1921: the beginning of the Golden Twenties. Not far from Paris, it is party day at the castle of Marguerite Dumont, a wealthy woman with a passion for music and the opera. For years, she has performed regularly for a circle of guests. Marguerite sings wholeheartedly but she sings terribly out of tune and no one has ever told her. Her husband, butler and close friends have always encouraged her in her illusions. Things become complicated when Marguerite falls in with a band of bohemians who persuade her to follow her dream and perform in front of complete strangers at the Paris Opera House. Starring ten-time César Award nominee Catherine Frot, Marguerite is a touching and light-hearted feast for the ears featuring music from Mozart, Bach and Vivaldi.

Marguerite is loosely based on the real-life Florence Foster Jenkins, who will soon to be embodied by Meryl Streep in an upcoming film.
