'Quartet' starring the fantastic Maggie Smith is a comedy set in a home for retired opera singers. It will be the directorial debut for Dustin Hoffman:
Harvey Weinstein said via the acquisition of U.S. rights to Quartet, starring Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly, Michael Gambon and Pauline Collins, he “decided to give an up-and-coming first-timer a chance.”
With his tongue firmly in his cheek Weinstein’s comment referred to Dustin Hoffman, who makes his directorial debut with the comedy set in a home for retired opera singers. It also stars Tom Courtenay.
Maggie Smith is sure staying busy isn't she?!
