Le Week-end

Status:
Completed

Synopsis

Le Week-end is a beautifully observed, funny and poignant story about the nature of love and commitment where husband and wife yearn to recapture their youthful fearlessness, lack of responsibility and idealism.

A married couple (Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan) revisit Paris to revitalise their marriage, and run into an old friend (Jeff Goldblum) who acts as a catalyst for things to come.

Meg feels she deserves a better life, but at crucial moments we see how insecure and bereft Meg would be without her husband Nick. Le Week-end is a delicious ‘portrait of a marriage’ with all the sensitive imperfections of a life of partnership; it’s also a weekend when Nick gets to sing out loud Like a Rolling Stone in his underwear!
