Trailer For Dustin Hoffman’s ‘Quartet’

Quartet Trailer
Weinstein Co.

How has Dustin Hoffman not directed a movie until now? The 75 year old two-time Oscar winner is a genuine living legend and one of the best actors of all time, so why he chose to wait until his twilight years to step behind the camera is beyond us. Anyway, his directorial debut is little movie called ‘Quartet‘ and it definitely looks like a potential crowd-pleaser.

Although ‘Quartet’ doesn’t officially hit theaters until January 4th, you can bet on an Oscar-qualifying limited run sometime in the next two months. After all, the Academy loves Dustin Hoffman and much of the cast he’s assembled here (not to mention that the fact that it’s being distributed by the ever Oscar-hungry Weinstein Company), so it would be foolish not to. As for the film itself, it looks like it falls somewhere in the halfway point between ‘The Full Monty’ and ‘The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,’ combining the “older folks rediscover life” and the “people put on a ragtag show to save an insituation” subgenres. In this case, the plot revolves around retired opera singers (including Maggie Smith, Michael Gambon and Billy Connolly) coming together to save their retirement home.

In addition to the trailer, a clip from the film and a quick behind-the-scenes featurette have surfaced, so take a few minutes to watch ‘em all, if you’re so inclined.
