Starring: Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Mark Ivanirl

Directed by Yaron Zilberman, A Late Quartet follows the members of a string quartet (Christopher Walken's Peter, Philip Seymour Hoffman's Robert, Catherine Keener's Juliette, and Mark Ivanir's Daniel) as they're forced to collectively confront a wide variety of issues - including Peter's health problems, Robert's driving ambition, and Daniel's romantic entanglements…transforming it into an impressively engrossing drama. As effective as Keener and Walken are here, it's Hoffman's consistently spellbinding performance that stands as the movie's most compelling attribute…which is capped off with a conclusion that packs a palpably emotional punch – Reel Film Reviews
