MCC International Film Series - "Quartet"

Manchester Community College's International Film Series for Fall 2013 contains films from Australia, Spain, USA, and UK.  There will be an optional brief discussion, along with a potluck dessert, after each film.

Quartet (United Kingdom) – Cecily, Reggie, and Wilfred are in a home for retired musicians. Every year, on October 10, there is a concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday and they take part. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie and the fourth member of the quartet, arrives at the home and disrupts their equilibrium. She still acts like a diva, but she refuses to sing. Still, the show must go on... and it does. Directed by Dustin Hoffman, Maggie Smith stars. 98 mins. English/Polish. Rated PG-13.

    Although the movie was predictable (as one person said during the discussion) and bittersweet (as another said) it was beautifully acted and shot. Definitely deserves a broader showing and re-viewing. Recommend!!

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
