Le Week-End


The endlessly-watchable Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan play a long time couple spending a weekend in Paris in a British romance film that could best be described as an unofficial 25 year later sequel to the 'Before Sunrise'/'Before Sunset'/'Before Midnight' trilogy.  It's easy to see how this could be Jesse & Celine in their mid 60's.  After a lifetime together the romance isn't quite there anymore and they are attempting to get it back in The City of Love.  And as if that isn't reason enough to see this charming film, Jeff Goldblum pops up in a supporting/extended cameo in a role that's just so very Jeff Goldblum.

Grade: A-

Who is this movie for?  Those who fancy romance films for the more mature.
