The Fugue Quartet have performed together for over 25 years, attracting worldwide acclaim. However, when one member admits that time may have finally caught up with them, the quartet are faced with an uncertain future. Yaron Zilberman's thoughtful drama explores the complexity of the quartets lives behind their stage personas, employing Beethovens notoriously difficult String Quartet No. 14, as a metaphor for the challenges life throws up.
A Late Quartet is an emotionally uplifting film about the beauty of music, and the secrets of the heart that lie beneath the surface of life-long relationships. Director Yaron Zilberman elicits career-best performances from a fine ensemble cast including Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Mark Ivanir and Imogen Poots.
