Comedy drama
The crowd of senior-citizen retired opera singers in the palatial old folk’s home in the English countryside is sweet and cuddly in this similarly s-and-c comic drama, the official directing debut of Dustin Hoffman. Best of all, quite a few of the assembled can actually belt out an aria. The title foursome of flighty artistes – Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins, Tom Courtenay, and Maggie Smith as, what else, a difficult diva – does a bang-up job, as do Michael Gambon, Sheridan Smith, and Andrew Sachs, better known as Manuel from Fawlty Towers. Easy to take despite the easy-pathetic, easier-comfy screenplay, adapted by Ronald Harwood from his stage play (98 min.)
