With an acting career packed with numerous achievements including two Oscars, Dustin Hoffman tackled directing a feature film with this wonderfully acted drama about sudden upheaval in a retirement home for musicians.
The arrival of the newest resident (Maggie Smith) shakes things up for her ex-husband (Tom Courtenay) and their former professional partners (Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins). An imminent concert may or may not lead differences among them to be patched up. DVD extras: "making-of" documentaries; audio commentary by Hoffman. *** (PG-13: AS, P) (Also on Blu-ray and On Demand)
