LE WEEK-END / June 4, 6, 7 & 8

May 30, 2014 - June 8, 2014

NY Times Critics’ Pick

A long-married British couple, revisit Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their relationship. Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan star in this witty, magically buoyant romantic comedy. Diffident, wistful Nick (Broadbent) and demanding, take-charge Meg (Duncan) careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock and grapple with love, loss, regret and, disappointment, in their own very English way. When Meg and Nick run into their insufferably successful old friend Morgan, an amusingly boorish American academic with a fancy Parisian address played with pure delight by Jeff Goldblum, their squabbles rise to a register that’s both emotionally rich and very funny. Le Week-End is written by Hanif Kureishi (My Beautiful Laundrette) and directed by Roger Michell (Notting Hill).  (93 min)

 They are two intelligent, sophisticated people searching for the spicy condiment they need to keep their relationship fresh during a bittersweet weekend in Paris, and, like the film that frames them, they are smart, substantial and enchanting. –The New York Obser
