Quotes about Florence Foster Jenkins[edit]

  • Mrs. Jenkins could dream if she could not sing.
  • Critics have long wondered whether Coloratura Jenkins' art can be described as singing at all. But she will intrepidly attack any aria, scale its altitudes in great swoops and hoots, assaying its descending trills with the vigor of a maudlin cuckoo.
