First Amusing Trailer for Dustin Hoffman's Directorial Debut 'Quartet'
"If it's any consolation Reg, she looks 100." He's been in countless films, won numerous awards including two Oscars, and taken us on many cinematic adventures, now he is stepping behind the camera to start directing. Quartet is the feature directorial debut of 74-year-old actor Dustin Hoffman, a delightfully charming/amusing England-set dramedy about a home for retired opera singers. The cast, which is the best part about this beyond Hoffman behind the camera, is lead by Michael Gambon, Maggie Smith (both from Harry Potter), Pauline Collins, Tom Courtenay and Billy Connolly. Take a look and have fun!

Cecily, Reggie & Wilfred are in a home for retired opera singers. Every year, there's a concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday and they take part. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives and disrupts their equilibrium. She still acts like a diva, but she also refuses to sing. Still, the show must go on... and it does.
Quartet is the directorial debut of Oscar-winning actor Dustin Hoffman. The screenplay was written by Ronald Harwood (The Pianist, Being Julia, Oliver Twist, Australia), adapted from his own stage play. This was produced by BBC Films & Headline Pictures and being released by The Weinstein Company in the US. Quartet does not have a release date yet, but expect it by the end of the year during awards season. Curious?
