• See the feel good Quartet for free

    Who said that being retired is no fun? Wilf, Reggie and Cissy are lifelong friends and residents of Beecham House, a home for retired opera singers, and are still having the time of their lives.

    But midway through preparations for the trio’s annual concert, a familiar face from the past checks in and puts the whole show in doubt.

    Jean (Maggie Smith) is one of the biggest names in opera and the most successful member of the group’s original quartet. But not yet having come to terms with her fame fading away, she’s a real misery guts and in desperate need of lightening up.

    Can reconnecting with her ex-husband Reggie and her group of young-at-heart friends be enough to show her that life may actually begin after sixty?

    A feel good story for the whole family with plenty of laughs along the way, this movie stars Britain’s Hollywood royalty and you can see it first.

    About the movie

    Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut,  Quartet (Cert 12A), is an uplifting comedy starring a host of Oscar® and BAFTA® award nominees and winners including Maggie Smith.


    Beecham House is a grand home for retired opera singers and every year, its residents put on a concert to raise money for the home.


    Lifelong friends Cissy (Pauline Collins, Upstairs, Downstairs), Reggie (Tom Courtenay, The Dresser) and Wilf (Billy Connolly, Mrs Brown) are the stars of the show but this year they’re in danger of being outshone by a familiar face from the past.


    Beecham’s newest resident Jean (Maggie Smith, The Harry Potter series, Downton Abbey), is the fourth and most successful member of their former quartet and, crucially, also Reggie’s ex-wife.


    There’ll be plenty of grudges and disagreements for the group to overcome before they can take to the stage as a foursome once more. But it’s sure to be the year’s biggest reunion if they can get through it.


    Quartet (Cert 12A) will be showing in cinemas nationwide from 1 January 2013.
