Beecham House is a retirement home with a difference: it specifically caters for former artistes including one-time opera singers Cissy, Reginald and Wilf. Once part of a quartet, the three still take part in an annual concert to celebrate the birthday of composer Giuseppe Verdi. But this year things change by the arrival of the fourth member of their quartet, Jean, a diva who also happens to be Reginald’s ex-wife. Theatrical temperaments and old hostilities flare as the dramatic foursome fuss, flirt and flounce their way through rehearsals, adhering emphatically to that old showbiz adage, ‘the show must go on’.

7/10

This is a funny yet simple film. Also it is full of drama, a stellar cast and beautiful music. What more could you ask for?

There are some strong swear words which are not for the ears of younger audiences.
