Quartet sees some of the best actors in movies under the direction of the great Dustin Hoffman. When retired opera star Jean (Maggie Smith) enters a retirement home for elderly musicians she is horrified, not just by the regime of enforced fun but by the fact that her ex is one of the inmates. Can such prickly characters get over their personality clashes to pull together to put on a show that could save the home itself? Quartet is a highly enjoyable comedy showcasing the cream of British acting talent, including Pauline Collins and Tom Courtenay.
