Our ongoing AFM (American Film Market) coverage continues as Steve grabbed a shot of the promo poster and synopsis for Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut Quartet. It’s hard to believe that Hoffman has never officially helmed a film until now, but it’s exciting to see what he’ll come up with. He’s also got a great cast with Maggie Smith, Albert Finney, and Tom Courtenay set to star.
Hit the jump to check out the promo poster and synopsis.
UPDATE: The studio has asked us to remove the poster. Sorry if you missed it.
Here’s the synopsis for Quartet:
Dustin Hoffman directs Academy Award winner Maggie Smith, five-time Academy nominee Albert Finney and two-time Academy nominee Tom Courtenay in a mischievous comedy about life and love.
Dirty little secrets stir up the reunion of a world-famous quartet when they get together for a one-off concert.
An eccentric diva, her first ex-husband, a lustful baritone, and the scatter-brained object of his desire make up a cast of vivid characters.
Funny and touching, this is the story of four friends reconciled and revived by their love of applause.
