So, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Christopher Walken, Catherine Keener and Mark Ivanir as a string quartet? Sure, we'll make the leap, particularly when it involves some of our favorite actors.

Heading to Toronto to make its World Premiere in September, "Watermarks" director Yaron Zilberman's feature film debut will find music and drama coming together, hopefully in harmony. Here's the official synopsis: When the beloved cellist of a world-renowned string quartet is diagnosed with a life threatening illness, the group’s future suddenly hangs in the balance as suppressed emotions, competing egos and uncontrollable 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.

No release date yet, but the film will be distributed by Entertainment One.
