Documentary filmmaker Aviva Kempner '76 published a blog post in The Wrap on "Quartet," a new film directed by Dustin Hoffman about "egotistical fading musicians and opera singers holed up in an "old folks’ home" in the English countryside."

Kempner writes, "Billy Connolly shines as the humorous Wilfred Bond, whose inappropriate running commentary both shock and entertain. Maggie Smith as Jean Horton continues the habitual casting of her as queen of the diva roles from "Downton Abbey" to "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel."  In this more romantic role, she softens up as she repairs the damage of breaking off relations with an old love, Reginald Paget (Tom Courtenay)."
