  QUARTET   1 hr 38 mins   WHY WE CHOSE IT - The first movie directed by Dustin Hoffman. It’s practically must-see stuff for someone who grew up watching his awesome performances for 45 years.   ONE SENTENCE PLOT -- Legendary English opera diva Maggie Smith moves into an idyllic old folks’ home for (apparently well-heeled) retired classical musicians in the English countryside, and is forced to deal with her ex-husband who left her for another woman many years earlier, while distracted by the partying shenanigans and wishful thinking of her fellow guests.    SUBTEXT – Ego begets regret. Conquer regret, and you conquer your future.   CAST -- Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins, Michael Gambon, Tom Courtenay, Maggie Smith,  David Ryall, Michael Byrne, Andrew Sachs; Director: Dustin Hoffman; Writer: Sir Ronald Harwood.

Dustin Hoffman's first turn at directing a film and with a dream moviola cast: Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Pauline Collins, Michael Gambon, Billy Connolly, Andrew Sachs and Trevor Peacock. This is a version of Roland Harwood's much-loved play, set in retirement home for ageing musicians where preparations for the annual gala are thrown into chaos by the arrival of opera diva, Jean (Maggie Smith). One reviewer called this film 'a shed-load of fun'. And one can see how much everyone involved enjoyed the thing. Pauline Collins steals the film from everyone - a lovely, fragile performance - but there are so many memorably sweet and poignant moments.

Basil is manic, Sybil domineering, and Manuel – of course – is hopelessly language-challenged. Everything that can go wrong, does, in some beautifully controlled chaos. Just don’t mention the war!

Fawlty Towers is a British sitcom produced by BBC Television and first broadcast on BBC2 in 1975 and 1979. Twelve episodes were made (two series, each of six episodes). The show was written by John Cleese and his then wife Connie Booth, both of whom also starred in the show. The first series was produced and directed by John Howard Davies; the second was produced by Douglas Argent and directed by Bob Spiers. The series is set in Fawlty Towers, a fictional hotel in the seaside town of Torquay, on the "English Riviera". The plots centre around tense, rude and put-upon owner Basil Fawlty (Cleese), his bossy wife Sybil (Prunella Scales), a comparatively normal chambermaid Polly (Booth), and hapless Spanish waiter Manuel (Andrew Sachs) and their attempts to run the hotel amidst farcical situations and an array of demanding and eccentric guests.
