Meg knew her 30th anniversary with Nick was going to be “an effing disaster.” And that’s just what it was. Of the best possible kind. The middle-class British couple decided to go on a Parisian aventure to rekindle the spark that had since been consumed by time and old age… and the global economic crisis. The result is an acid-tongued exploration of enduring love and everything that comes with it: joys, pitfalls, and mediocrities. Through a comical series of encounters involving the law, sexuality, and Jeff Goldblum, the two are able to realize just why they stuck together all these years. Boasting a jiving jazz soundtrack, Roger Michell’s LE WEEK-END is a dazzling Franco-British export with lovely turns from Jim Broadbent and Lindsey Duncan as Nick and Meg. As they romance and bumble their way through the Goddard-esque cafés and boulevards, they discover how damn difficult it is to love someone, especially after 30 years of marriage. —C.P.
