Le Week-end

It was a close call this week, but Le Week-end won the poll. 

We will meet up about 15 minutes before the movie starts.  I will be in the lobby at 7:15 p.m.

Le Week-End (Chez Artiste Theatre, 7:30 p.m.) 

Academy Award winner Jim Broadbent (Iris) and Lindsay Duncan (Mansfield Park) give exquisite performances as Nick and Meg, a long-married British couple revisiting Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their relationship. During a two-day escapade, diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness—and even deeper regret. A surprise invitation from Nick's old friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), an amusingly boorish American academic with a fancy Parisian address, soon leads them to an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become. This magically buoyant, bittersweet comedy-drama is a new peak in the ongoing collaboration between Notting Hill director Roger Michell and screenwriter Hanif Kureishi (Venus, The Mother).

After the movie, we will go somewhere local for dinner or drinks and discussion.

    I wouldn’t have picked this movie on my own. I like that the Meetup group stretches my horizons. This was an interesting, original, and unpredictable look at a late-life crisis. Trying to rekindle some sparkle in their lives, fraught with disillusionment, the honesty about it all turned out to be the vitality they were looking for. I liked that! I’ve noticed that films about loneliness seem more poignant when set in a foreign country, which seems to enhance the feeling of alienation—as in The Lunchbox and Lost in Translation. Another thing I really liked was the jostling camera effect in the opening scene, which gave a very vivid feeling of being on a train. I think that was innovative; I don’t remember ever seeing that technique before.

    Interesting, quirky film with some great acting and odd character motivations and plot. Nevertheless, a nice evening meeting everyone, and thanks to Jamie for organizing.

      India Oven's site says they close at 10. A few places nearby (driving) open late: Jerusalem about 2.5 mi away on Evans @ High St. west of DU, Illegal Pete's a block west of there, and Dave & Buster's at Colorado/I-25.

    I vote for Enemy. Gyllenhaal is on a roll. Looks like a nice, taut, psychological thriller.
