If I had to choose between seeing Quartet and having all my windows blown out by an exploding meteor, it might come down to whether the windows would be covered by insurance, because that at least would be interesting and wouldn't cost me anything.

This movie stars the wonderously talented Dame Maggie Smith and Billy Connolly. The setting is a retirement home called Beecham House in the English country side for retired professional singers and musicians. The home and the grounds are gorgeous. The beauty of the setting coupled with the music that is provided throughout the movie by the residents, becomes almost another character in the film. The movie does tackle the harsh aspects of aging and losing health, but it does so with humor and dignity. It follows the classic Hollywood script of having the old gang get together to perform one more time to secure the funding to keep their home open. In the process, the audience is treated to the talents of many of Great Britain's most talents actors, singers, and musicians. This will be a movie that I will cherish and watch over and over again.

What a rare pleasure these days: a fillm with first-rate acting, writing and direction, about actual people. The multi-generation gap between seniors and teenagers is played with complete respect for both - how often do we see that nowadays? The locale is a delight - I want to live in that house. And there's music everywhere, all the time. A first-rate chamber piece. Highly recommended.
