Join the Washington DC Sunday Night Film Club this Sunday, Nov 4th at 4:10 for A Late Quartet at the Landmark Bethesda Row . Look for Laine wearing a green coat in the theatre lobby about 15 minutes before the film. As always, after the film we will descend on a local establishment for dinner/drinks/discussion.
When the beloved cellist of a world-renowned string quartet receives a life changing diagnosis, the group’s future suddenly hangs in the balance: suppressed emotions, competing egos, and uncontrollable passions threaten to derail years of friendship and collaboration. As they are about to play their 25th anniversary concert, quite possibly their last, only their intimate bond and the power of music can preserve their legacy. Starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken, Mark Ivanir and Catherine Keener, and inspired by and structured around Beethoven’s Opus 131 String Quartet in C-sharp minor, A Late Quartet pays homage to chamber music and the cultural world of New York.
