“A Late Quartet” – “Bravo”

With a powerhouse cast led by Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener, A Late Quartet, is now in theaters after its successful premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival earlier this fall.

This chamber drama, (a N.Y Times Critic’s Pick), pulls back the curtain for a look into the private backstage world of an illustrious string quartet on the verge of celebrating its 25th season. But the celebration in Quartet soon turns into a flashpoint for ambition and jealousy and tests the deep affection and bond they share.

“Bravo,” applauds the San Francisco Chronicle; “a shining gem of a movie,” writes Peter Travers in Rolling Stone, “It’s paradise to watch this quartet of actors.”… “a master class in the craft of acting.”

Roger Ebert observes, “Actors such as Keener, Walken, Hoffman and Ivanir are frequently seen in roles that don’t really test them. That’s the nature of the commercial cinema. What a pleasure to see them sounding their depths.”

Marc H. Simon represents the film’s producer Spring Pictures.
