Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut, about a group of retirement-home musicians looks at ageing through rose-tinted glasses

Cecily, Reggie, and Wilfred are in a home for retired musicians. Every year, on October 10, there is a concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday and they take part. Jean, who used to be married to Reggie, arrives at the home and disrupts their equilibrium. She still acts like a diva, but she refuses to sing. Still, the show must go on... and it does.

"This is a worthy entry into that drama/comedy/romance hybrid genre of ensemble-acted older-retired-Brits made popular by 2011’s The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Charming, funny, and sentimental, the film is exactly what you expect it to be, but very satisfying in achieving that goal. The end credits are especially entertaining, as they highlight prior stage performances, orchestra gigs, and television work done by the cast."
