Watch: Philip Seymour Hoffman in First Trailer for 'A Late Quartet'
In a couple weeks we'll see Philip Seymour Hoffman back on the big screen with frequent collaborator Paul Thomas Anderson behind the camera for The Master, but later this year, he's picking up a violin for a drama called A Late Quartet. The film follows Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Christopher Walken and Mark Ivanir as a musical group whose members have performed together for 25 years who must adjust to one of them (Walken) forced into retirement due to Parkinson's disease. The film is playing at Toronto this week (stay tuned for coverage), and now a trailer has arrived to help build some buzz. Watch the trailer!
Here's the first trailer for Yaron Zilberman's A Late Quartet via The Playlist:
A Late Quartet follows the members of a world-renowned string quartet whose lives are changed when their first violinist (Walken) is diagnosed with Parkinsons, and announces his retirement. Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken, Catherine Keener and Mark Ivanir play the titular musicians and Imogen Poots also has a role. Yaron Zilberman is directing as his feature film debut from a script he co-wrote with Seth Grossman. The film premiered at TIFF this month and hits limited theaters November 2nd. Well?

Maybe it's the editing, but I'm having a hard time buying into the fact that these great actors are actually great musicians.. I'm happy to see Keener and Hoffman back together in a film though, so I'm interested. Also Mark Ivanir should be mentioned at the end come on.. 🙂
