QUARTET @ Landmark, Saturday, 1/12, 4:50 PM

If 2012's The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel didn't make the case that old actors still have a role to play, here comes another one. First time director Dustin Hoffman, at 75 (was The Graduate really made that long ago?), has corralled a bunch of septo- and octogenarians like himself to make what the trailer suggests is a pretty funny movie without a drunk thirty something in sight. Take that, Judd Apatow!

A late afternoon movie with dinner afterwards has worked out pretty well at the Arclight Hollywood, so let's try it at the Landmark and see how it works out.

Tickets are available on Landmark's website. I'm in J1.

Dinner and discussion after the movie to be announced later.


Lifelong friends Wilf and Reggie, together with former colleague Cissy, are residents of Beecham House, a home for retired opera singers. Every year on Giuseppe Verdi's birthday, the residents unite to give a concert to raise funds for their home. But when Jean Horton, a former grande dame of the opera fallen on hard times, also Reggie's ex-wife and the fourth and most celebrated member of their former quartet, moves into the home to everyone's surprise, the plans for this year's concert start to unravel.

Based on Ronald Harwood's stage play of the same name, QUARTET is a wickedly comic film about redefining old age and growing old with hope; demonstrating how art illuminates life and the human spirit remains undimmed even as the brightest stars start to fade.
