Le Week-End (film)

A bit short notice for the subject of today's blog but there's a good looking film coming up at Hailsham Pavilion in a couple of days' time. Le Week-End is the fourth collaboration between director Roger Michell and writer Hanif Kureishi, who began developing the story together seven years ago during a weekend trip to Montmartre. Their finished film, described as a poignant comedy, premiered in the Special Presentation section at the 2013 Toronto International Film Festival.

Nick (Jim Broadbent) and Meg (Lindsey Duncan) Burrows are a married academic couple from Birmingham advancing in age and tension. To mark their 30th wedding anniversary and hoping to rejuvenate their marriage, the two embark on a trip to the city where they honeymooned three decades ago - Paris. Unfortunately, things tend not to go as planned. Eventually, the Burrows bump into Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), a successful former student of Nick’s, and attend a dinner party that ultimately opens up a new view of life and love for them both.

Hailsham Pavilion, Tue 26th, Wed 27th and Thu 27th Nov, 19:45.
Wed 26th and Thu 27th Nov, 14:15.
Tickets £6.50, £5 concessions, £4.50 Wed matinee, available online, by calling 01323 841414, or in person from the Box Office.
