The rumor circling the halls is that Beecham House (the home for retired musicians) is soon to play host to a new resident. Word is, it's a star. Reginald, Wilfred and Cecily are in for a special shock when the new arrival turns out to be none other than their former singing partner, Jean. 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.

The story raises expectations but does not deliver at the end.

Except perhaps to retired professional musicians, the story line isn't overly interesting. The supposed "dramatic parts" didn't seem to hold as much importance as the characters were placing on them. And the acting -- while professionally performed -- is a little uneven in places. But even with the above quibbles, it's still a workable and believable story-line. Especially with the wonderful accompanying music. On the whole it held my interest. Enjoyable and relaxing. This is one where you can shut your eyes and just listen to the soundtrack if you like, and enjoy just as much. Recommended.

Well acted and nicely directed. Story is kind of predictable and lacking. Still, an enjoyable watch.

Warm and sentimental. Decent acting by a stellar cast4, but not much for them to work with. Undemanding, with equal reward.

Good movie, especially if music is what you like. I wish I could retire at such place, if it really exist.

Wanting to be quirky and poignant it is goes too far, except the fine acting talent. It's OK no more.

Didn't expect too much before watching it. But it was a surprise. Sorry is simple but pleasant.

Enjoyable enough, but not very memorable. It was a treat to see a few well known faces among the residents. As for the main characters? after starting to care a bit about their stories, I became distracted by how difficult it must be for a non-musician to portray a musician in a film about music.

Dr. Lucy Cogan: "Why do you persist in flirting with me, Wilf?" Wilf Bond: "Because, you're a cracker. A thing of beauty. You're not a bimbo, or a chick, or any of those awful things. You're one of that rarest of species... You're a woman, Lucy Cogan." Dr. Lucy Cogan (laughing): " Well, I'm flattered, but I have professional ethics to uphold." Wilf Bond: "Aaah, throw caution to the wind. What if we were to make beauuutiful music together... Your husband would never know!" Dr. Lucy Cogan: "Well, that's reassuring, Wilf." Wilf Bond: "Think about it, huh?" Dr. Lucy Cogan: "No, Wilf." Wilf Bond: "No one will ever know!" Dr. Lucy Cogan: "I will know." Wilf Bond: "Older man... vintage wine... seasoned wood..." Dr. Lucy Cogan: "...Did you say 'wood'?" Wilf Bond: "...Seasoned!..."
