If you are of an age and like music, this is a "must go". Maggie Smith and her inmates are truly wonderful. I wish my parents had been in this beautiful retirement home!

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.

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.

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,

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!
