Awards Season Revisited
The directorial debut of Dustin Hoffman, Quartet is a high-drama/comedy about a retirement home for musicians. The much-rumoured new arrival at Beecham house turns out to be none other than Jean Horton (Smith), the former singing partner of Wilfred (Connolly) Reggie (Courtney) and Cecily (Collins). Her subsequent career as a star soloist, and the ego that accompanied it, split up their long friendship and ended her marriage to Reggie. Can the passage of time heal old wounds? And will the famous quartet be able to patch up their differences in time for the home’s gala concert?
