Roger Michell

Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan, Jeff Goldblum, Olly Alexander, Judith Davis

In Mr. Michell’s magically buoyant and bittersweet film, Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan play a long-married couple who revisit Paris for a long weekend for the first time since their honeymoon, in hopes of rekindling their relationship-or, perhaps, to bring it to an end. Diffident, wistful Nick (Broadbent) and demanding, take-charge Meg (Duncan) careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock and grapple with love, loss, regret and, disappointment, in their own very English way. When Meg and Nick run into their insufferably successful old friend Morgan, an American academic superstar with a fancy Parisian address played with pure delight by Jeff Goldblum, their squabbles rise to a register that’s both emotionally rich and very funny.

Unknown

“Lightly played, often very funny and shot all over Paris with energy and wit, and boosted by superb, inquiring turns from Broadbent and Duncan.”

--Dave Calhoun, Time Out

“A finely matched Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan explore the wrinkles of marriage with humor and honesty.”

--David Rooney, Hollywood Reporter

“Bittersweet, charming yet often very thorny.”

--Dennis Harvey, Variety
