My review of “Quartet,” starring Maggie Smith and Billy Connolly, is now up at 77square.com. It’s a total charmer in the vein of “Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” and a fine (if unlikely) directorial debut for Dustin Hoffman.
I saw “Quartet” last September at the Milwaukee Film Festival right after a documentary on Jeffrey Dahmer, and it’s light, sure touch was even more appreciated. It opens at Sundance today. (And, interestingly, Madison is getting it ahead of Milwaukee.)
