Comedy, Drama

This shares a lot with last year's hit, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel. Not only is it a dramedy about a retirement community full of quirky, quippy characters looking for comfort in their golden years, but it also features Dame Maggie Smith, once again playing a cranky, unfiltered yet dignified old lady. Here, she's Jean Horton, a legendary opera diva who reluctantly moves into Beecham House, a British retirement home for professional musicians. The supporting cast includes Michael Gambon, Pauline Collins, Tom Courtenay and Billy Connelly. Dustin Hoffman directs.
