77 year old Maggie Smith has had a great year in TV and film.  She rocks in Downton Abbey and she has a shot at a supporting nod for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

Now it looks like she's getting the star treatment in Dustin Hoffman's directorial debut, Quartet.

This looks to be a must see.

Synopsis: Beecham House is abuzz. The rumor circling the halls is that the home for retired musicians is soon to play host to a new resident. Word is, it's a star. For Reginald Paget (Tom Courtenay), Wilfred Bond (Billy Connolly) and Cecily Robson (Pauline Collins) this sort of talk is par for the course at the gossipy home. But they're in for a special shock when the new arrival turns out to be none other than their former singing partner, Jean Horton (Maggie Smith). Her subsequent career as a star soloist, and the ego that accompanied it, split up their long friendship and ended her marriage to Reggie, who takes the news of her arrival particularly hard. Can the passage of time heal old wounds? And will the famous quartet be able to patch up their differences in time for Beecham House's gala concert?
