Film Society to present 'A Late Quartet' Oct. 24 and 25
For October’s Monthly Screening, the Rehoboth Beach Film Society will present the drama, “A Late Quartet” at 7 p.m., Thursday, Oct. 24, at DiFebo’s at Bear Trap Dunes, and at 7 p.m., Friday, Oct. 25, in the upstairs screening room at the Movies at Midway in Rehoboth Beach.
On the eve of a world renowned string quartet's 25th anniversary season, their beloved cellist, Peter Mitchell (Christopher Walken), announces he is diagnosed with early symptoms of Parkinson’s disease and that he has decided to make the upcoming season his last. The news places his three colleagues on the edge of letting their hidden resentments, competing egos, suppressed emotions, and uncontrollable passions derail years of friendship and collaboration. As they are about to play their 25th anniversary concert and quite possibly their last, can the power of music and their intimate bond preserve their legacy?
Inspired by and structured around Beethoven's Opus 131 String Quartet in C-sharp minor, this film pays homage to the unique world of a chamber music player living in New York City. This film features performances from Academy Award winners Christopher Walken, Phillip Seymour Hoffman and Catherine Keener. [2012, US, Runtime: 105 min, Rated R]
