Quartet is the upcoming directorial debut of actor Dustin Hoffman, and judging by the trailer, it looks adorable. Cute old people with British accents and refined sassiness? Sign me up. Starring Michael Gambon, Maggie Smith, Pauline Collins, Tom Courtenay and Billy Connolly, Quartet is set in an English retirement home for retired opera singers.
When a diva named Jean (Smith) shows up, the equilibrium of the home is set off-balance, and cute-old-peopleness ensues. Quartet is set to come out later in 2012, but doesn’t have an official release date yet.[via First Showing]
