If you have a proclivity for the smaller, indie films, then you won’t want to miss Le Week-end. This charming film opens at the Plaza Frontenac Cinema in St. Louis this Friday, March 28th.
Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent (Iris, Topsy-turvy, Another Year) and Lindsay Duncan (About Time, Alice In Wonderland, Mansfield Park) give exquisite performances as Nick and Meg, a long-married British couple revisiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their relationship.
During a two-day escapade, diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness – and even deeper regret. A surprise invitation from Nick’s old friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), an amusingly boorish American academic with a fancy Parisian address, soon leads them to an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become. »

We're a sucker for a good rom-com, and the age of the couple in question doesn't matter. If anything, the older the couple, the sweeter the romance (see Enough Said for last year's great example of this). Le Week-End is the latest in this lovely subgenre, and it stars Jim Broadbent (Cloud Atlas, Another Year) and Lindsay Duncan (Mansfield Park, About Time) as a British couple who decide to re-create their honeymoon in Paris. While there, an old friend (Jeff Goldblum) helps them discover new sides of themselves. It was written by Hanif Kureishi (Venus, The Mother), directed by...
