Le Week-End (2013)

Director: Roger Michell. Cast: Lindsay Duncan, Jim Broadbent, Jeff Goldblum. 93 min. Rated R. UK/France. Comedy/Drama.

An old couple spend their "unplanned" anniversary weekend in Paris: the man has the lifetime habit of telling the sarcastic truth, and the woman isn't sure spending 30 years of her life with this man was a very good idea. Sound familiar? It's the Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight version of an old couple, and the viewer tries to predict whether the two will still be together by the end of the movie. But the screenplay assures the movie is above and beyond that. Watch this with a group; you'll be thinking/discussing the significance of honesty and devotion ... in your own marriage.
