Directed by: Dustin Hoffman

The plot: Beecham House is a retirement home for opera singers and musicians, who are in the twilight of their glorious careers. Run with a gentle touch by on-staff medic Dr Lucy Cogan, the facility is full of colourful characters including Reginald, Wilf and Cissy, who used to perform together. Their humdrum routines at Beecham House are thrown into disarray by the arrival of Jean, Reg's ex-wife and the fourth member of their old quartet.

what the others say

The Guardian

"Hoffman has delivered a love letter to the elderly thesps of his adoptive country. We can forgive him its falsehoods."

Total Film

"As cozy as a mug of Horlicks inside an electric blanket, Hoffman's film couldn't offend if it tried."

Digital Spy

"Quartet has a warmth and charm that'll likely make it a firm hit with the same crowd that turned out for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel."
