Plot Summary
Once-popular opera diva Jean Horton (Maggie Smith) creates a stir with her arrival at Beecham House, a home for retired performers. No one feels the uproar more than Reginald (Tom Courtenay), Jean's ex-husband, who still stings from her long-ago infidelity. Most of the other Beecham residents are delighted, and try to convince Jean to join them in a performance of "Rigoletto." Jean, however, knows that she is long past her prime and is reluctant to sully the memory of her once-lovely voice.

    Very Good Movie Dustin Hoffman did a fantastic job with phenominal Actors and aging life stories. Stay for the Credits very good. Dustin in \"Hook\" did not know where you were in the movie until a couple of minutes after. Genius
