The Weinstein Company released the first theatrical trailer of Quartet, an upcoming 2012 British comedy-drama film based on the play by Ronald Harwood.

The film stars Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Sheridan Smith, Michael Gambon, Pauline Collins, and Billy Connolly.

Watch the trailer below:

It was filmed in its entirety at Hedsor House, Buckinghamshire in Autumn 2011. The film is actor Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut.


“Cissy, Wilf, and Reg are all retired members of an operatic quartet, living in Beecham House, a retirement home for gifted musicians, who put on a concert on Giuseppe Verdi’s birthday every year. However, the arrival of the fourth member of the quartet, and Reg’s ex-wife, Jean, results in old rivalries and theatrical temperaments and it becomes unclear if the show will or will not go on.”

Quartet is scheduled to release on 28 December, 2012.
