Beamafilm Club – Quartet @ Devonport Library
Once-popular opera diva Jean Horton creates a stir with her arrival at Beecham House, a home for retired musicians. No one feels the uproar more than Reginald, Jean’s ex-husband, who still stings from her long-ago infidelity. Most of the other Beecham residents are delighted and try to convince Jean to join them in a performance of ‘Rigoletto’. Jean, however, knows that she is long past her prime and is reluctant to sully the memory of her once-lovely voice.
