Refreshingly uplifting

A wonderful cast of actors (who doesn't love Maggie Smith) who do a beautiful job of reminding all that love is timeless. More than a couple laugh out loud moments,

Quartet

A tour de force for Maggie Smith. The acting was outstanding. Sets, wardrobe, perfect as backgrouind. A wrenching portrayal of a life in change at a time when one needs peace, quiet and stability. The results of this lady's choices turned out well.

Sweet and funny

This is a beautiful piece--visually, musically, and in terms of the fine acting.The theatre was nearly full, and everyone laughed together. Deep laughs of recognition. I noticed quite a lot of gray hair around me, and perhaps this is a virtuoso piece for people of "a certain age." The outcome is somewhat predictable--we all know that people get old and frail and eventually die. Less usual is the treatment of the parts of us that live until the end: our love of (in this case) music, and our love for each other. The inclusion of actual, older musicians was a real treat.

A Hiigh-Quality Quartet!

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.

This movie is definitely outstanding and everyone should see it. A beautiful love story that unfolds to opera and classicl music. The cast is amazing and Maggie Smith is at her best as usual. All of the actors did a wonderful job of the persons they portrayed. It is definitely a must see and my husband and I will probably go see it again!
