About the Film
The all-star cast of Phillip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken, and Catherine Keener, makes this film a complete delight. A LATE QUARTET pays homage to the professional music and cultural world of New York City. When the beloved cellist of a world-renowned string quartet can no longer perform to demanding standards, the group’s future suddenly hangs in the balance. Suppressed emotions, competing egos, and uncontrollable passions threaten to derail years of friendship and collaboration. As they are about to play their 25th anniversary concert, quite possibly their last, only their intimate bond and the power of music can preserve their legacy.
