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

"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."

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, 206-683-7850, 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.
