Dustin Hoffman's ‘Quartet’ Trailer

The first trailer has been released for Quartet, the directorial debut of Oscar-winning actor Dustin Hoffman. The story centers on Wilf (Billy Connolly), Cissy Pauline Collins, and Reggie (Tom Courtenay), a trio of retired opera singers who perform a concert every year to celebrate Verdi's birthday. The plot thickens when Reggie's ex-wife Jean (Maggie Smith) arrives and turns their trio into an unorthodox quartet. Check it out.


Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred are in a home for retired opera singers. 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.

Quartet was released January 11th, 2013.
