Featuring a terrific leading cast in Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, and Mark Ivanir, the film was well received across the Atlantic back in the autumn/fall last year. And now its UK release is certainly something to look forward to in a few weeks’ time.
Ahead of the release, the UK quad poster has debuted online, along with the UK trailer variant, reminding us what we’ve got to look forward to here.
The Fugue Quartet have performed together for over 25 years, attracting worldwide acclaim. However, when one member admits that time may have finally caught up with them, the quartet are faced with an uncertain future. Yaron Zilberman’s thoughtful drama explores the complexity of the quartet’s lives behind their stage personas, employing Beethoven’s notoriously difficult String Quartet No. 14, as a metaphor for the challenges life throws up.
A Late Quartet is an emotionally uplifting film about the beauty of music, and the secrets of the heart that lie beneath the surface of life-long relationships. Director Yaron Zilberman elicits career-best performances from a fine ensemble cast including Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Mark Ivanir and Imogen Poots.
Imogen Poots completes the leading cast as the daughter of Hoffman and Keener, with Wallace Shawn starring alongside them.
Zilberman makes his feaure debut behind the camera, following his 2004 documentary Watermarks, directing from a script he co-wrote with Seth Grossman.
A Late Quartet will be released in theatres and through VOD on the same day here in the UK, on 5th April. So if it’s not playing in a cinema near you, then you’ll be able to watch it that same day through the Sky Store or through Curzon On Demand. In the US, the film is now available to buy on DVD/Blu-ray. Whilst we await its UK release, here’s the new quad poster, along with the UK trailer.
