In this witty and wise romantic drama, Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan shine as a long-married academic couple who attempt to reinvigorate their relationship by visiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon. While there, they run into an old friend (Jeff Goldblum), a dismayingly successful writer, who acts as a catalyst for them to recapture their lost spirits. Written by Hanif Kureishi, a lifetime of regret and joy is unpacked as they see the sights, revisit the past, wrangle with mishaps and misunderstandings, and ponder their future. Personal, warm, melancholy, and funny, “the Brits’ love-hate relationship with Paris (love the city, hate the French) generates plenty of laughs—but it’s the couple’s own ambivalence—about each other, their accomplishments, their marriage, and what’s left for them—that makes Le Week-End a keeper.”—The Guardian.
