There are so few movies that portray older people not only in their frailty, but also in their loveliness. Quartet is one of them.
It’s full of heavy-hitting actors such as Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Billy Connolly, and Pauline Collins—all playing aging opera singers. And they reside at Beecham House, a retirement home for gifted musicians.
Lack of financing could close the home, threatening the welfare and close companionship of its residents. Will rivalries be put to good use to save Beecham House? Will the personal fears of individuals be set aside so a greater benefit can be gained? And, there is the matter of an old betrayal. Will past grievances be forgiven so that a long-ago lost love regains its rightful place?
For a charming movie that confirms humor, grace, and second chances can exist later in life, watch Quartet.
