Revisiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon, a long-married British couple (Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan) run into an old colleague (Jeff Goldblum) and discover a new vision of what life and marriage might be, in the new film from director Roger Michell (Notting Hill) and screenwriter Hanif Kureishi (My Beautiful Laundrette).

Movies have lately turned their attention to the romantic lives of older people, but often do so in an "isn't that charming" manner that verges on condescending. Bracing, prickly, and full of passion, Le Week-end's characters shed the cozy comfort of retiree rom-coms for an altogether more interesting love story.

Rejecting their first, depressingly beige, hotel for an impossibly expensive choice, Meg then begins rejecting her husband. "Can I touch you?" he asks, tentatively. "What for?" she snaps. Although they would never stoop to acting them out physically, this relationship has emotional contours the Marquis de Sade could embrace. When Meg and Nick run into their insufferably successful old friend, played with pure delight by Jeff Goldblum, their squabbles rise to a register that's both emotionally rich and very funny.

By turns sharply comic and deadly serious, Le Week-end is full of surprises. The dialogue has both the heart and the crackle of Richard Linklater's Before… series, delving deep into the tensions that shape this couple's relationship while holding nothing back. Director Roger Michell (Notting Hill, Hyde Park on Hudson) has shown us the pleasures of complicated romance before, but never has his filmmaking felt freer. From the charged scenes at the hotel, to Goldblum's delicious intervention, to a clever nod to Jean-Luc Godard at the end, this is one of the most enjoyable love stories we've seen all year.

“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.”
-NEW YORK OBSERVER

“A smart, ardent, profound movie.”
-NEW YORK DAILY NEWS
