Product Description

Quartet DVD from DVDLand starring Maggie Smith and Billy Connolly. Directed by Dustin Hoffman.

Quartet is a 2012 British comedy-drama film based on the play of the same title by Ronald Harwood, which ran in London's West End from 1999 - 2000.

Lifelong friends Wilf and Reggie, together with former colleague Cissy, are residents of Beecham House, a home for retired opera singers. Every year on Giuseppe Verdi's birthday, the residents unite to give a concert to raise funds for their home. But when Jean Horton, a former grande dame of the opera fallen on hard times, also Reggie's ex-wife and the fourth and most celebrated member of their former quartet, moves into the home to everyone's surprise, the plans for this year's concert start to unravel.

As old grudges threaten to undermine past glories and theatrical temperaments play havoc with the rehearsal schedule, it becomes apparent that having four of the finest singers in English operatic history under one roof offers no guarantee that the show will go on.

Based on Ronald Harwood's stage play of the same name, QUARTET is a wickedly comic film about redefining old age and growing old with hope; demonstrating how art illuminates life and the human spirit remains undimmed even as the brightest stars start to fade.

Quartet is actor Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut, and has been nominated for a 2013 Golden Globe for Maggie Smith's performance (Best Actress - Comedy or Musical).

  1. If you like wonderful acting and classical music

    Posted by Thelma on 10th Mar 2019

    A wonderful film about aging, long term relationships with marvelous actors and wonderful classical music in the background.

    A gentle and thought provoking film without swearing (only two swearwords in the whole film) no guns no car chases, but with an incredible cast
