A Late Quartet

A Late Quartet Release Date: November 2, 2012

The movie A Late Quartet (a horrible film), is not to be confused with the light-hearted comedy Quartet, also in theaters this winter, which stars two-time Oscar winner Maggie Smith.

When the beloved cellist of a world-renowned string quartet receives a life changing diagnosis, the group’s future suddenly hangs in the balance: suppressed emotions, competing egos, and uncontrollable passions threaten to derail years of friendship and collaboration. As they are about to play their 25th anniversary concert, quite possibly their last, only their intimate bond and the power of music can preserve their legacy. Inspired by and structured around Beethoven’s Opus 131 String Quartet in C-sharp minor, A Late Quartet pays homage to chamber music and the cultural world of New York.

Expect A Late Quartet to fizzle at the movie box office.
