Opera diva in a nursery home - Ok that alone could not sell movie tickets - but I am talking about the movie "Quartet" directed by Dustin Hoffman and with a star struck cast like Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Pauline Collins, Bill Connelly andd Michael Gambon.
The cast does not let us down, but dazzle us with their presence and humour. The settings is a nursery home for musicians, so the home is filled with music and the tennants' everlasting huge passion  for their metier. There is sparkling of drama between some of the tennants, and then there are those who are just enjoying themselves immensely being among peers.
The nursery home needs funding to survive, so they are organizing a concert to raise money - will their latest arrival return from her retirement and dazzle the audience with her voice?
See it - it will make you in a good mood and it's a tribute to those elderly English actors that are still going strong and making us laugh.

I saw a trailer for this and it looked so good - considering the talent, how could it be anything but wonderful! I will look for it and watch it. Thanks for reminding me and letting me know how wonderful it is.
