Superb cast of actors that give you their best in this hilarious look at aging opera stars. Treat yourself to a fun experience of the elderly perspective of themselves.

I guess I'm a sucker for anything Maggie Smith! The cast was amazing, the story heartwarming and the setting stunning. This movie is for any age and has a wonderful message that, it's never too late to try one more time. Brava to the entire cast and Dustin Hoffman for an incredibly well done performance.

Wishing there had been more actual music playing by the members of the musicians retirement home, and perhaps a bit more of the back stories of the principal players Quartet was, nonetheless, a pleasing, even uplighting, film about friends helping friends grow older, and about artistic temperament in all its varieties. Quite a novel treatment. I liked it.

Quartet is funny and charming. Even though I don't like opera, I do love music, and I appreciate the music throughout this movie. But the best part of this movie is it's humor.

Interesting, engaging, happy ending. I found the film to be a bit slow in some spots, but Sissy kept us guessing and loving her. Maggie Smith was excellent as always. The story line is familiar and showed what determination, compassion and grit can produce. I especially liked the interaction with the young adults. We need more of that at retirement communities.
