About Le Week-end
A drama about the trials and tribulations of a long marriage. Nick (Jim Broadbent) is a university professor who never quite reached the academic heights promised by his youth. He is aware of this, but more worried about his hapless grown children and the issue of his forced retirement. His wife Meg (Lindsay Duncan) is an impatient, passionate woman looking for something more from her later years. To celebrate their 30th wedding anniversary, the couple decide to enjoy a weekend in Paris in the same hotel where they spent their honeymoon. A lot of affection and history flows between Meg and Nick, but for every happy reminder of their courtship there's a past irritant or sad realisation. At a fancy dinner party thrown by one of Nick's ex-students, things come to a head.
