Summary: This is "Before Midnight" for the retirement-age set. Unlike the couple in that other film, Nick and Meg don't shriek incessantly at each other about all the things they've been pissed off about for 8 or 10 years. Rather (because they're older? More rational? English?
Summary: This is a film about an aging married couple whose trip to Paris is designed to spark a declining relationship. It will disappoint those who expect a geriatric romantic comedy, but it is intelligent and superbly acted. Lindsay Duncan, long a fine stage actress, makes a stellar switch to film.

Summary: LE-WEEKEND truly aspires for depth and relevance but ultimately falls into the easy cliches that we associate with the typical Hollywood RomCom. This is a film that ultimately feels false and forced.
Summary: A simplest movie, which tells the story of an old couple from Birmingham who decides to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary in Paris. Like all the married couples these two as well not exceptional for facing all the ups and downs during their life together.

Summary: You know how they say a movie can grow on you ? Well, they are right. This movie grew so that I ended up despising it. So boring and pretentious it was, with nothing to say. It was hard to hear (low sound). It was hard to look out, even with gorgeous Paris in the background.
Summary: “Le Week End” is a charming, warm and deeper than it purports to be film written by Hanef Kureishi with directorial credits going to Roger Michell. The film stars Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan and, in the latter half, Jeff Goldblum.
Summary: A bitter sweet drama that is also funny. Jim Broadbent and (especially) Lindsay Duncan are utterly convincing as a jaded married couple returning to Paris to celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary.
