QUARTET (Theatrical Release USA 2013)

 Ben Meyers’ rating: 4.0|5.0 Starsìììì

presents its story with an all-star British, Irish, and Scottish cast. The movie works at a slower pace and quieter noise level than American entertainment. The fact that the story revolves around retired classical musicians adds to its uniqueness. The movie slides into its storyline gently and resolves its two primary dilemmas a surprising manner. Watch for a satisfying and unexpected conclusion.

? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. This movie especially appeals to classical movie enthusiasts but also touches the heart in that unique way that British cinema does so well.
