Dustin Scored! ...and so does everyone else.

If you think you know what this film is about, guess again. Life is just not that simple. There is a good deal of depth developed, a strong touch of realism, sweetness, objectivity, not to mention beauty and joy. If you want to enjoy a truly entertaining movie, if you love excellent acting, a very well written script, and what is an obvious joy to have directed, go and see it. The actors don't have to struggle here. There is a real script, a talented director, and people are really drawn into the film, from minute one to last moment. There's really no morbidity to speak of, but a realistic storyline that I think almost anyone can relate to. Young or old, you just may find you're surprised at how much you enjoy it. I was. Dustin, you outdid yourself, my man!

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.

Love that line and so believe in this home for talented musicians and singers. In a small theater only a third full and we broke out clapping at the credits. I had tears in my eyes when I saw pictures of the before and after... partly for respect of who they are, remembering some of them and then like me looking so different now that I did not recognize some before the credits. Then, it feels good to laugh at one's self too.

You don't have to be an opera lover to enjoy the interaction between the residents and staff at this retirement home for professional musicians. It's a story of hope when you feel you've lost what you thought was important. It shows how valuable friendships are, how easy it is to misunderstand circumstances and the importance of being able to forgive yourself and others It also makes obvious what we all have in common no matter our situation in life - mortality. I loved everything about this movie. The actors, the music and the beautiful location.
