A Late Quartet

See Showtime Listings for This Week

Ends Thursday, December 27th

The new drama about the world of classical musicians, starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken and Catherine Keener!

 

“It's paradise to watch this quartet of actors … A small, shining gem of a movie that works its way into your heart with insinuating potency of music.” – Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“The performances are treasures, led by Christopher Walken in a surprisingly gentle, soulful key as the group’s senior member.” - Lisa Schwarzbaum, Entertainment Weekly

“How much does one need to know about classical music to appreciate this film? Not very much. Like all masterful films, it contains what is needed to appreciate it.” – Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times

 

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. Starring Oscar-winners Philip Seymour Hoffman and Christopher Walken, Oscar-nominee Catherine Keener and Mark Ivanir, and 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. (Dir. by Yaron Zilberman, 2012, US, 105 min., Rated R, Entertainment One) 35mm & Digital Presentations
