Full Plot

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, 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.

Trivia

- 'Dustin Hoffman' (qv)'s first completed directorial effort. In 1978, he began directing "Straight Time," but after a few days decided it was too difficult to both star and direct, and asked 'Ulu Grosbard' (qv) to take over.

- 'Maggie Smith (I)' (qv) also starred in another film named Quartet (1981) about 31 years earlier, however the only similarities between the two movies are the title and Smith.

- SPOILER: The principal actors were trained to sing but the scene of them singing the titular quartet from Verdi's opera Rigoletto was cut from the movie.

- Most of the supporting cast were retired professional musicians.
