"Le Week-End" @ Guild 45th Theater (Wallingford)

We will be attending the 4:15 showing of “Le Week-End” at the Guild 45th Theater located in Seattle's Wallingford neighborhood. Here is a description of this film taken from rottentomatoes.com:

"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."

Here is a preview of this film:

tomatometer - Le Week-End

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

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

“Since it's Broadbent, Duncan and Goldblum doing the skipping, trashing and mimicking, their second adolescence is great fun to watch.” (NPR)

Meet me at 4:15 in the lobby of the Guild 45th Theater. I am an Asian male who wears glasses and who will probably be wearing a hat of some type (beret, hiker's rain hat, African brimless cap). A head shot of me is in the photo section of my profile so you can see for whom to look. My cell phone,[masked], will be on until the start of the program. Note: I use a "dumbphone" (i.e., no frills or data plan though it does meet Military Standard 810G, eg, it will operate in a sand storm) so do not send any text messages or post any comments on the web site - I will be unable to read those. Please call me if you need to contact me.

There will be an optional food and beverage stop at the conclusion of the film (conclusion = after all the credits have been shown). Meet me in the lobby of the theater at which time we will decide which establishment to patronize.

    I agree Ken and absolutely loved Jeff Goldblum's performance/character too! Having parents who have been married 50 years also helped me relate to the movie alot...

    Both actors so very convincing.........dynamic and complex relationship.
    I think they will stay together........this was their emotional dance that probably plays out to let off steam.

    Good flick! Felt like I was eavesdropping on a couple's intimacies. Thanks for organizing this, George, and to everyone for the fun conversation afterwards.

    Would love to go but still not able to sit for too long following surgery. Sounds like my kind of film. Hope it's a good one!

    The post film discussion will most likely be held at Nikolas which is in the building that formerly housed the Rusty Pelican (RIP). They have a moderate priced and extensive menu, and will be open until 8:00 which will give us plenty of time to discuss, drink, and eat.
