Competition: Win ‘A Late Quartet’ on DVD *closed*

An astute, poignant and uplifting drama, Yaron Zilberman’s sensitive depiction of the New York music scene, A Late Quartet (2012), elicits career-best performances from a stunning ensemble cast including Christopher Walken, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener and Imogen Poots. To celebrate the DVD and Blu-ray release of Zilberman’s drama this coming Monday (29 July), we have THREE DVD copies of the film to give away, plus copies of the film’s soundtrack, to offer our loyal readers courtesy of Curzon Film World. This is an exclusive competition for our Facebook and Twitter fans, so if you haven’t already, ‘Like’ us at or follow us @CineVue before answering the question below.

When the beloved cellist of a world-renowned string quartet receives a life changing diagnosis, the group’s future suddenly hangs in the balance: suppressed emotions, competing egos and passions threaten to derail years of friendship and collaboration. As they are about to play their 25th anniversary concert, quite possibly their last, only their intimate bond and the power of music can preserve their legacy. Inspired by and structured around the Opus 131 String Quartet in C-sharp minor, A Late Quartet pays homage to chamber music and the cultural world of NYC.

To be in with a chance of winning one of THREE copies of A Late Quartet on DVD, as well as a copy of the film’s soundtrack, just answer the following simple question:

The Opus 131 String Quartet belongs to which legendary composer?

a) Johann Sebastian Bach
b) Ludwig van Beethoven
c) Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart
