Film: A Late Quartet

January 3, 2013 @ 6:00 pm - 12:00 am


The public and private lives of the four members of an internationally famous string quartet run off the rails when cellist Peter (Walken) reveals a debilitating illness on the occasion of the group’s 25th anniversary. Long-simmering jealousy and resentment find outlets in bickering, marital infidelity, and deception. Hoffman, Walken, and Keener are stunning, and the ensemble cast also includes Mark Ivanir and rising star Imogene Poots (as a young virtuoso temptress). Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 14, Opus 131 is the film’s theme and a haunting metaphor for a story of endings and new beginnings. 35mm. (BS)
