Storyline Heading
Beecham House is abuzz. The rumor circling the halls is that the home for retired musicians is soon to play host to a new resident. Word is, it's a star. For Reginald Paget, Wilfred Bond and Cecily Robson this sort of talk is par for the course at the gossipy home. But they're in for a special shock when the new arrival turns out to be none other than their former singing partner, Jean Horton. Her subsequent career as a star soloist, and the ego that accompanied it, split up their long friendship and ended her marriage to Reggie, who takes the news of her arrival particularly hard. Can the passage of time heal old wounds? And will the famous quartet be able to patch up their differences in time for Beecham House's gala concert?

Movie Type (Genre) Heading
Comedy Drama - This comedy-drama is a showcase for respected older actors from the UK, most especially Maggie Smith, though co-stars Tom Courtenay, Pauline Collins, Michael Gambon, and Billy Connolly also have choice roles to play. There is some mild language and mildly bawdy humor, but on the whole this is safe family viewing though children would in all likelihood not be interested.
