Released a year before Meryl Streep’s “Frances Foster Jenkins,” this French film also takes inspiration from the real-life story of a society matron devoted to singing opera — despite her decidedly tin ear. “Marguerite” has light moments and hits many of the same notes (the protagonist’s passion for music, her audiences’ hypocrisy), but also the darker notes of a failing marriage.
Rated R; 129 minutes.
