Green star means this is Stranger-recommended  

2013 | 93 minutes | Rated R

A British couple in their 60s goes for a weekend in Paris to celebrate their anniversary, revisiting a trip they had taken many years before. Nick (Jim Broadbent) is a philosophy professor, and Meg (Lindsay Duncan) is a teacher. One moment it appears that they are happy together, joking and laughing, then it seems like their marriage could be tearing apart at the seams. These are not cutesy people in late-middle-age—they fight and swear and criticize. Their exchanges are intense and brutal and loving and funny and furious as they look at their life together. “You can’t not love and hate the same person,” Nick states. The trip is a testing of their bond. They have shared a lifetime of experiences and joy and disappointments. The film is charming but it isn’t sweet, and the terrific leads perfectly show the complexity of a couple in a long-term marriage.
