Florence Foster Jenkins makes poignant, crowd-pleasing dramedy out of its stranger than fiction tale and does its subject justice with a terrific turn from Meryl Streep.

In the 1940s, New York socialite Florence Foster Jenkins (Meryl Streep) dreams of becoming a great opera singer. Unfortunately, her ambition far exceeds her talent. The voice Florence hears in her head is beautiful, but to everyone else it is quite lousy. Her husband St. Clair (Hugh Grant) goes to extreme lengths to make sure his wife never finds out how awful she truly is. When Florence announces her plans for a concert at Carnegie Hall, St. Clair soon realizes that he’s facing his greatest challenge yet.

As taut as it is timely, Eye in the Sky offers a powerfully acted and unusually cerebral spin on the modern wartime political thriller. Helen Mirren is superb.

Using remote surveillance and on-the-ground intelligence, Powell (Helen Mirren) discovers the targets are planning a suicide bombing and the mission escalates from “capture” to “kill.” But as American pilot Steve Watts (Aaron Paul) is about to engage, a nine-year-old girl enters the kill zone triggering an international dispute, reaching the highest levels of American and British government, over the moral, political and personal implications of modern military operations.
