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!

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.

The movie "Quartet" was a pleasure from beginning to end with touching and funny parts throughout . A lovely retirement home in a former manor house set in the English countryside whose residents just happened to have been some of England's finest musicians, vocal and instrumental, during their respective careers. The story included a long-lost love affair revived and confidence and love of their craft renewed. It was gratifying to witness the characters overcame their fear of growing old and not still being a star. Then seeing the pleasure brought about when they were able to celebrate the composer, the music, love and life as a retired person.
Loved it, loved it loved it! There is hope as we grow old and change.
We left the theater with a smile on our faced. Such a charming movie--great actors and performances.
Go see it, by all means! Very enjoyable and encouraging.

Charming story well acted with great musical scenes. Verging on cliche'ed I felt it went for laughs when drama and poignancy would work. Cast was excellent. Well played. I normal enjoy Billy Connolly but this was not a good part for him. I wished that someone other than. he had been cast. Still a nice movie in spite of that. Pity the ending was rather like Billy Elliot,
The location for the movie was perfect. A stately English Country home and landscape. Made we want to be there.
