Broadsheet Trailer Park: Quartet



What you may need to know:

1. Quartet is the first movie directed by Dustin Hoffman.

2. Dusty was supposed to make his directoral debut with Straight Time
(1978), but decided to concentrate on acting in it instead. It’s a stone-cold forgotten ’70s classic.

3. Hoffman’s TV starring debut, Luck, just got cancelled owing to some
unfortunate on-set deaths.
4. Billy Connolly looks set to corner the market in randy/irreverent
pensioner roles.

5. Tom Courtenay is a legend. Fact.

6. Did we mention that The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel (2011) just made $100M worldwide?

7.The only thing that could possibly save this movie: a Hoffman cameo, reprising his role from Tootsie (1982).

Release date (Ireland): January 2013
