Now playing in theaters everywhere is the new film, A Late Quartet, directed by Yaron Zilberman, which stars Philip Seymour Hoffman (The Master; Synechdoche, New York), Catherine Keener (Being John Malkovich; Synechdoche, New York), Christopher Walken (The Deer Hunter, Annie Hall), and Mark Ivanir (Schindler’s List, The Good Shepard). When the beloved cellist of a world-renowned string quartet receives a life changing diagnosis, the group’s future suddenly hangs in the balance: suppressed emotions, competing egos, and uncontrollable passions threaten to derail years of friendship and collaboration. As they are about to play their 25th anniversary concert, quite possibly their last, only their intimate bond and the power of music can preserve their legacy. Inspired by, and srtuctured around, Beethoven’s Opus 131 in C# minor, A Late Quartet pays homage to chamber music and the cultural world of New York.

I recently had the chance to speak with Yaron Zilberman about A Late Quartet. »
