Life Experience

A Late Quartet, film by Yaron Zilberman

A study of a quartet of stellar classical musicians who, for twenty-five years have toured the world’s top musical venues as a harmonious, finely honed and perfected musical team but are now facing a crisis. One of the members of the team, cellist, Peter Mitchell, is facing retirement on health grounds and the break-up of the group releases emotions and conflicts suppressed for all their years together. Then there is the added excitement and tension created by the choice of a possible replacement musician, the young, beautiful, talented, desirable and desiring Alexandra Gelbart.

Consummate and sometimes electrifying performances and playing. Catherine Keener, Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Mark Ivanir, Imogen Poots. The film is based around Beethoven’s String Quartet No. 14, opus 131 which is actually played by The Brentano String Quartet. Filmed in New York. Script co-written by Yaron Zilberman and Seth Grossman.
