Le Week-end

British actors Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan might be two of the most watchable screen presences we have and in Le Week-End their constant bickering and gentle chastising is a delight. Throw in some quintessentially Parisian scenery, a Godard reference or two and quietly observant storytelling, and you’ve got yourself something truly délicieux.
