QUAR­TET

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

It is set in a re­tire­ment home and the stars are all over 60 but Quar­tet isn’t a movie just for the sil­ver-haired set. At the heart – and among the jokes about in­con­ti­nence and mem­ory-loss – is a story for all ages about re­demp­tion, hope and ac­cep­tance. It starts with the ar­rival of a star soloist (Mag­gie Smith) at a home for re­tired mu­si­cians and singers. Her ar­rival puts her back in touch with some for­mer col­leagues and an ex-hus­band which adds more ten­sion to the home’s an­nual fundrais­ing con­cert. Di­rected by Dustin Hoff­man, it also stars Billy Con­nolly, Pauline Collins, Tom Courte­nay and Michael Gam­bon. ★★★ Ex­tras: None
