Who would have thought that a movie about a retirement home full of ageing musicians would be so entertaining.
Last night I attended an early screening of Quartet at the Chicago International Film Festival. I enjoy this festival immensely and keenly watch for the program to be announced. I usually whittle my selection down to two or three options and buy a pair of tickets to each. That way I can be sure of getting in to the often sold out shows and I can invite a friend too.
I’m always touched by the kindness of friends and like the opportunity to treat them in return. Quartet is an English production so it seemed appropriate to come armed with a bag of British candy to share with my companion. Crunchies always remind me of my first trips to the London theatre with my Father, while Maltesers are the ultimate cinema candy (or sweets). Let the performance begin!
