Time Out says

Dustin Hoffman makes his directorial debut with this British Film adapted by Ronald Harwood (‘The Pianist’, ‘The Diving Bell and the Butterfly’) from his own play. The plot centres around a retirement home for opera singers where three residents, Wilf (Billy Connolly), Reggie (Tom Courtenay) and Cissy (Pauline Collins), attempt to put on a concert to celebrate Verdi's birthday. The concert is thrown into disarray when Reggie’s ex-wife and former grande dame of opera, Jean (Maggie Smith), arrives at the home. This will be Hoffman’s first project since his HBO series ‘Luck’ was cancelled after a third horse died during production.
