The Mister and I went to the most darling movie on Saturday. It was “my pick” by the way; the Mister likes to keep a tally of hits and misses that we each choose. Quartet was a big hit in my book.
Quartet was directed by Dustin Hoffman. The plot centers around an enchanting retirement home for gifted musicians. The “home” and its grounds are breathtaking and give Downton Abbey a run for its money. If I knew this place was in my future, I would reserve my room now.
The movie focuses on four main characters that were former Opera stars. I don’t want to give too much away but I will tell you the film is filled with fabulous music, laugh-out-loud moments, and a tender love story.
The supporting cast was made up of actual musical stars from the past. If you see this movie – stay for the credits. It shows each of the supporting actors in their “heyday” along side of a present picture and short bio. That put the frosting on the cake of this beautiful movie for me.
Even the Mister enjoyed Quartet, which is really something considering there is no shooting, spying, bloodshed, fancy cars, or crazy stunts in it.
Hope your Tuesday is filled with music to your ears!
