A British couple, Meg and Nick, (played by the wonderful Lindsay Duncan and Jim Broadbent) return to Paris in an attempt to reinvigorate their struggling marriage. At times raw, vulnerable, scathing, funny and touching, Le Week-End is a wonderful example of intelligent and poignant screen writing at its finest. This character driven plot shines with strong performances by both leading actors and is further enhanced by the supporting role of Jeff Golblum. Long term relationships are rarely black and white and this film brings out both the love and fondness felt between the couple as well as the pain and alienation that each have inflicted upon the other. View this movie and find out if their relationship revitalizes or implodes as well as how they deal with life and with each other.
Overall Rating: B+
