Quartet: ShockYa Movie Review

ShockYa: A tepid autumnal dramedy aimed at aging boomer fans of arthouse fare like “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel,” “Mao’s Last Dancer” and “The Full Monty,” “Quartet” represents Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut, but it’s shot through with so little in terms of conflict, stakes or even passion as to leave one questioning the very reason for its existence, let alone the legendary actor’s attachment to the material. Though rooted in a true story, the thinly sketched “Quartet” fails to ignite either much excitement of imagination or identification, resulting in an amiable bore.

The story is too old to be commented.
