Now back to the cast. Maggie Smith does a good job in attacking Hollywood's obsession with youth. Her acerbic one liners are as good as ever and there are some excellent scenes where Billy Connolly's character indulges in flirtatious banter with the head doctor.

Maggie Smith attacks Hollywood's obsession with youth - The Guardian
Quote from Maggie Smith in The Guardian:-
"It seems to me there is a change in what audiences want to see," she said. "I can only hope that's correct, because there's an awful lot of people of my age around now and we outnumber the others.
Loved Maggie Smith's wardrobe in the film, soft colours and draped shapes, very appropriate to a women of years.
There are some bittersweet notes about the pathos of reaching a career's end. I found the end credits particularly well done, with photographs of all the actors when they were young including the orchestra. A very touching hall of fame for a vanishing world of the performing arts. Very moving.
If you get a chance do see it and enjoy.
