LE WEEK-END screening at 6:10 p.m.; Fido's after

In LE WEEK-END, a magically buoyant, bittersweet romantic comedy, Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan 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. Starring two of Britain’s national treasures, LE WEEK-END is a new peak in the ongoing collaboration between screenwriter Hanif Kureishi and director Roger Michell, following VENUS, THE MOTHER and THE BUDDHA OF SUBURBIA.  Dir. Roger Michell, France/UK, 2013, 93 min., R, DCP

Dinner and discussion at Fido's after for those interested. It's across from Boscos and Sam's. My cell# is below if you don't spot us.

Parking information:

—Parking's always free in the Belcourt's lot when you're attending a movie (and do note that meters in Hillsboro Village are free on weekends, because there are times the Belcourt lot is completely full). However, you will need to get a parking pass.

—If you buy your ticket online and choose the "print at home" option, you'll have a parking pass attached to your ticket.

—If you buy your ticket at the box office, the Belcourt will actually give you a pass you can put on your dashboard (so you don't have to go back to the paystation and enter a code).

Derek will be in the lobby seated at a table at 6:00 p.m. until 6:10 p.m.  If you don't spot us or arrive later, call or text me at [masked]. I'll come out to the lobby and show you where we are sitting at.

“Captures Paris in all its sensuous delight...a truly romantic film.” —Harper’s Bazaar

“Perfectly cast and utterly charming! Full of hilarious exchanges and unexpected treats.” —Lisa Mullen, Sight and Sound

    Derek, Kyle and I are not able to attend the dinner at fido! I forgot to tell you this. Is this problematic at this point?

      Not at all. With Fido, there are no reservations. We just find the right size table for those who want to come. See you all tonight!
