Dustin Hoffman’s directorial debut will open the 30th Turin Film Festival, which runs from November 23rd until December 1st. The Turin festival is the pre-eminent independent film event in Italy, and prominently features English language pictures, often from younger directors. The film is a lighthearted comedy centered in a retirement home for aging musicians, named Beecham House. Each year the house holds a concert to celebrate composer Giuseppe Verdi’s birthday, but their latest money-spinning event is thrown into jeopardy when Reg’s (Tom Courtenay) ex-wife Jean Horton (Maggie Smith) comes to live at Beecham. The film also features Pauline Collins, Bill Gambon and Billy Connolly.
