A Late Quartet Trailer Brings Hoffman, Walken And Keener Together
Oscar season could just as easily be called "Philip Seymour Hoffman Season" because the guy is basically synonymous with this time of year. It's around the start of September each year that we really start getting ready for the latest powerhouse performance from the Academy Award winner, be it in Moneyball and The Ides of March in 2011, or titles like Doubt, Capote, Before the Devil Knows You're Dead and Synecdoche, New York before that. In 2012 we know that we have The Master, which reunites Hoffman with his Boogie Nights, Magnolia and Punch Drunk Love director Paul Thomas Anderson, but that's not the only prestige work that the performer has.
Later today at the Toronto International Film Festival audiences will get to see the premiere of A Late Quartet, the new film from writer/director Yaron Zilberman that stars Hoffman, Christopher Walken, Imogen Poots, Catherine Keener, Mark Ivanir and Wallace Shawn. In anticipation of the screening the first trailer for the movie has arrived online and you can watch it below.
The film stars Hoffman, Walken, Keener and Ivanir as four members of a world-renowned string quartet. While things seem to be going well, the group is rocked by the news that one of their own has been diagnosed with Parkinson's Disease. With their last performance set, however, tensions rise and they threaten to stay together. The movie marks Zilberman's first venture into the feature film world. RKO Pictures will be distributing the picture and it will be in limited release starting on November 2nd.
