Le Week-End, an English arthouse movie at the European Union Film Festival South Africa

Le Week-End is a 2013 British movie directed by Roger Michell.  It is set in Paris but is mostly in English.  It stars Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan as a couple, Nick and Meg, trying to recapture their youth.  They run into an old friend played by Jeff Goldblum.

The movie didn’t work for me on many levels and I think it was because I found the premise implausible.  I don’t want to go into this because it will spoil it for those who do watch the movie.

This is a comedy drama and it is being screened as part of the European Union Film Festival at Cinema Nouveau in May 2014.
