Harry Potter alumni Maggie Smith and Michael Gambon star in the first trailer for Dustin Hoffman’s directorial début Quartet!
Billy Connolly, Sheridan Smith and Tom Courtenay also star in the feature, which was adapted by Ronald Harwood from his play of the same name and directed by Dustin Hoffman.
Cecily, Reggie and Wilfred are in a home for retired opera singers. Every year, on October 10, there is a concert to celebrate Verdi’s birthday and they take part. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their equilibrium. She still acts like a diva, but she refuses to sing. Still, the show must go on… and it does.

Quartet will be released in the UK on 14 Jan. 2013.
