About the Movie
Beecham House is abuzz. Rumor is that the home for retired musicians will soon play host to a new resident - a star. For Reginald Paget (Tom Courtenay of THE GOLDEN COMPASS), Wilfred Bond (Billy Connolly of BOONDOCK SAINTS, THE LAST SAMURAI) and Cecily Robson (Pauline Collins of ALBERT NOBBS), this sort of talk is par for the course at the gossipy home, but they're in for a shock when the new arrival turns out to be none other than their former singing partner, Jean Horton (Maggie Smith of DOWNTON ABBEY, GOSFORD PARK). Her subsequent career as a star soloist and the ego that accompanied it split up their long friendship and ended her marriage to Reggie, who takes the news of her arrival particularly hard. Can the passage of time heal old wounds? And will the famous quartet be able to patch up their differences in time for Beecham House's gala concert? Academy Award-Winner® Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut film.

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: Hoffman directs with elegance, allowing the denizens to be dignified, as well as adorable. We get a strong sense of each major character.
Fresh: The film's scant plot plays second fiddle to Hoffman and Harwood's nuanced exploration of love so long unrequited.
Fresh: Dustin Hoffman's directing debut about retired musicians in the third act of their lives has a winning, classy charm for older audiences.
Rotten: Always cute and breezy, "Quartet" often forgets that its protagonists are in a sobering stage of life, and that there's comedy to be found there as well.
Such an awesome and funny movie!!
One word.. Beautifull .. That's all!!
Another heartwarming charmer with Dame Maggie Smith and a great cast. If you love British humor and liked The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, you will,love this movie.
