Trailer, Clip & Featurette For Dustin Hoffman's 'Quartet'

A trailer, clip and story featurette have been released for Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut, 'Quartet.' The film stars Maggie Smith, Billy Connolly, Michael Gambon, Pauline Collins, Tom Courtenay and Sheridan Smith.

'Quartet' tells the story of Reggie (Courtenay), Wilf (Connolly) and Cissy (Collins) who reside in Beecham House, a home for retired opera singers. Each year they stage a concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday, which also raises funds for the home. Reggie's ex-wife Jean (Smith) arrives at the home and creates tension, playing the diva part but refusing to sing in the concert.

It opens December 28 2012 for the US, January 1 2013 for Ireland and the UK.
