If you like these great Englsh actors and actresses and you enjoy classical music, you will definitely enjoy this movie. If not, then you probably won't.

This is a glorious movie with absolutely lovely scenery and cinematography, gorgeous music, great humor and dialogue, a good old fashioned story with actual plot and a happy ending! What more could you want. Okay, cheaper popcorn but that isn't going to happen. I 'm not sure young people would enjoy this as much as older folks but it goes to the matter of being an oldster.
Dustin Hoffman has always acted in great movies now he has produced and directed one too!

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,

The performances of the actors in a British old age home for musicians are first rate and vividly portray the pathos of the sunset years of the elderly. Although the ending is uplifting, most of the movie is depressing and sad. Not because of the theme of living in the past when getting aged, but rather that the wounds and jealousies that plague our adulthood persist into old age when they shouldn't matter anymore. Dustin Hoffman does a great job of directing in his directorial debut, and the acting is first rate, but I found the movie to be mainly a downer.
