Synopsis 3.5 stars out of 4 -- One of the pleasures here is to see familiar and gifted actors forming an ensemble of their own.[A] magnificently acted film....Deeply felt, musically savvy film, set in a refined cultural precinct of Manhattan...[The actors are] perfectly in tune with each other, playing artists who’ve postponed life’s decisions in the name of pursuing their craft. -- Grade: B+3 stars out of 4 -- Grace notes abound in A LATE QUARTET, a small, shining gem of a movie that works its way into your heart with insinuating potency of music. 4 stars out of 5 -- [An] involving story of a long-established string quartet whose future is imperiled when their eldest, Parkinson’s-afflicted member announces his intention to retire.3 stars out of 5 -- [T]he actors play it beautifully, and there is no cheating with cutaways...A LATE QUARTET, the first fiction film from director Yaron Zilberman, follows the lives of four longtime colleagues who play in a celebrated string quartet together. As the group begin their 25th season together, the eldest member (Christopher Walken) discovers he has the beginning stage of Parkinson's disease. Because he can't perform to the best of his abilities, he would like to bow out of the quartet without disbanding it. However, a married couple within the group (Philip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener) are on the brink of breaking up, and their rocky period isn't helped by the fact that the fourth member has begun an affair with their college-age daughter. A LATE QUARTET screened at the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival.
