Le Week-End Blu-ray Detailed

Posted May 15, 2014 01:13 AM by Webmaster

Music Box FilmsMusic Box Films has detailed the Blu-ray release of director Roger Michell's Le Week-End, which stars Jim Broadbent, Lindsay Duncan and Jeff Goldblum and marks the fourth collaboration between Michell and screenwriter Hanif Kureishi (Venus, The Mother, The Buddha of Suburbia). The comedic romantic drama arrives on Blu-ray on July 8th.

Synopsis: Arriving in Paris for the first time since their honeymoon in an attempt to rekindle their 30-year marriage, British college philosophy professor Nick (Jim Broadbent) and school teacher Meg (Lindsay Duncan) get off to a rocky start in a cheap and depressing lodge. Moving into a swankier hotel with view of the Eiffel Tower sets them off on a better path, but it doesn't distract them from the knowledge that Nick is being nudged into early retirement, Meg is getting fed up with teaching, and each of them wants a fresh start that may or may not include the other.

The diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from contentment to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of three decades of deep tenderness, and even deeper regret. A surprise invitation from Nick's old buddy Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), a Paris-based American academic Nick hasn't seen in years, prompts Meg and Nick to take a broader view of their relationship. And it proves to be the catalyst that provides Nick and Meg with an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become.

Released to acclaim in over 200 of the top U.S. markets, the film's international fan base has rapidly grown. Insightfully written, outstandingly acted and gorgeously shot all over Paris, Le Week-End is at once biting and playful, easy and edgy, romantic and all-too-real; a universal tale about life, love, companionship and the hidden strength of a decades-long relationship, as it unfolds over a weekend in the ever-revealing City of Light.

Le Week-End was nominated for five British Independent Film Awards, including Best British Independent Film, Best Screenplay, Best Actor (Jim Broadbent) and Best Supporting Actor (Jeff Goldblum), with Lindsay Duncan bringing home the prize for Best Actress. The film also picked up nominations at the London Critics Circle Film Awards, the New York Film Festival, and San Sebastián International Film Festival, where Jim Broadbent was awarded the Silver Seashell prize for Best Actor.

The Blu-ray edition of Le Week-End is presented in 1080p with DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 surround. Special features include:
  • Audio Commentary with Roger Michell and Kevin Loader
  • Behind the Scenes Featurette with Michell, Hanif Kureishi, Jim Broadbent, Linday Duncan & Jeff Goldblum
  • How to Dance "The Madison" Tutorial Video
  • Illustration Gallery
  • Theatrical Trailer

A very charming film with, of course, terrific performances. Nice use of the Paris locations, too.
