Le Week-End (2014)
Starring Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan, and Jeff Goldblum
Directed by Roger Michell
***This film is currently streaming on Netflix***
Overly talky, every time I thought Nick and Meg were finally headed towards a reconciliation, someone would say something stupid and tick the other one off. Perhaps this is the way things begin to look after you've been with someone for such a long time, but I found the whole thing incredibly uncomfortable and unenjoyable to watch. I still think this is supposed to be a comedy, but I certainly never found myself laughing once. Despite decent performances from Broadbent and Duncan who really do try and sell the material, Le Week-End is more triste than drôle.
The RyMickey Rating: D
