Academy Award® winners Christopher Walken and Philip Seymour Hoffman strike all the right chords with Academy Award® nominee Catherine Keener and Mark Ivanir in this powerful story that blends raw emotion with fiery passion to form an unforgettable cinematic masterpiece. After 25 years together, the members of a world-renowned string quartet learn that their beloved cellist (Walken) may soon be forced to retire. But the news stirs up equally painful challenges when competing egos, harbored resentment, and irrepressible lust threaten to derail the group as they struggle to maintain harmony in their music — and their lives.
A Late Quartet is available on Blu-ray and DVD now.
I had the pleasure to receive a copy of A Late Quartet on DVD. I hadn’t really heard of the movie, and no idea what I was in for. From the cover, I assumed some beautiful music and a well made drama. What I experienced was that, and so much more. A deep story about human relationships and group dynamics. It’s through these relationships that we learn just how important relationships are with-in a Quartet. The film pulled me in and took me for a ride. One I really enjoyed. I felt for Walken’s character and thought of him long after watching the DVD. That is a sign of a well made movie!
Also to celebrate this critically acclaimed film, I’m sharing A Late Quartet page complete with playlists from writer/director Yaron Zilberman and co-star/acclaimed musician Nina Lee. You can view and listen below. Enjoy!
