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, Meg and Nick (Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan), revisit Paris to revitalise their marriage, and run into an old friend (Jeff Goldblum) who gives them a new vision on life and love.
Le Week-End marks the latest collaboration between Roger Michell and his long-standing partners, writer Hanif Kureishi and producer Kevin Loader – the trio also worked on Venus, The Mother and TV’s The Buddha of Suburbia
