Dustin Hoffman's “Quartet” rolls out 1st poster

PanARMENIAN.Net - Dustin Hoffman's Quartet has released its first poster, Digital Spy said.

The artwork for the actor's directorial debut - which stars Dame Maggie Smith - was posted on The Hollywood Reporter.

Downton Abbey actress Smith stars as famed opera singer Jean Horton, whose appearance at the Beecham House home for retired musicians is not entirely welcomed by her former singing partners Cecily Robson (Pauline Collins), Wilfred Bond (Billy Connolly) and ex-husband Reginald Paget (Tom Courtenay).

She insists on claiming all the attention by playing the diva, all the while refusing to perform in the annual concert in celebration of Verdi's birthday.

Hoffman was honoured with the Hollywood Breakthrough Director Achievement Award at the 16th annual Hollywood Film Awards in October for his work on the movie.

Quartet received a standing ovation when it debuted at the Toronto International Film Festival in September.

The film will debut on January 1, 2013 in the UK and January 4, 2013 in the US.
