Le Week-End is held by two brilliant performances, and also one by Jeff Goldblum. Jim Broadbend and Lindsey Duncan hold this movie together. They're both the mould and the paste of this film. Their characters have chemistry, and great chemistry at that. Although they're not, they actually made me believe that they're a married couple. Is that weird? That's probably weird. Their performances are full of charm and realism, making this film believable, although it's believable just based on screenplay alone so I'm going to say it's more believable instead. Oh yeah, and did I mention that Jeff Goldblum is in this movie too? Yeah, he's in it. He plays a character, and this character is in the movie. Jeff Goldblum. Jeff freaking Goldblum. I hope he doesn't mind if I call him J.
The plot, however, is rather flimsy. I've watched countless movies that go about plot-less, such as the masterpieces that are the Before trilogy, and Le Week-End has a similar feel in terms of plot, except it's not done as effectively. It's pretty weak, actually. Nothing happens, which occasionally I'm fine with. It's just a loop of events with no progress being made until late into the second half. But it's okay because they have Jeff Goldblum.
