Le Week-end

Director: Roger Michell

Starring: Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan, Jeff Goldblum, Olly Alexander, Judith Davis

Tired academics, Nick (Jim Broadbent) and Meg Burrows (Lindsay Duncan) are from Birmingham and decide to rekindle their relationship and celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary in Paris where they spent their honeymoon. As they dine in quaint cafes and browse churches and bookshops, emotional tensions come to a head, and their union seems headed to oblivion. Then by chance they meet an old American friend, Morgan (Jeff Goldblum) who helps them put things in perspective. Supreme performances from Broadbent and Duncan with a great cameo from Goldblum. Well worth seeing this movie.
