    The actors are world-class charmers, and the magnificent Dame Maggie is the diva divine. Her wit still stings, as it does on "Downton Abbey." show more

    Quartet is buoyed by the Scottish charm of Billy Connolly, as a lovable flirt and extrovert - he is a delight and also a locus of truth in every scene he's in. show more

    And that, in the end, is what Quartet is about: determined engagement, embracing music and theater and the arts, and embracing the friends and loved ones you have around you. show more

    Music lovers will appreciate both the score and the nostalgic end credits, which revisit the early years of the aged supporting cast (many of whom were actual musicians). show more

    Personally, I'd show up for Maggie Smith's top-drawer basilisk stare if she were guesting on "Sesame Street." show more

    They have the perfect supporting cast, made up of a group of exceptional real-life musicians: retired members of orchestras and opera companies, and a pianist bristling with the suppressed impatience of the longtime accompanist. (To see who they are, stick around for the credits.) show more

    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

    I loved this movie, but whoever made the decision to have these wonderful actors use the \"F\" word should get 40 lashes. It just didn\'t fit the eloquence of their characters.
