Roger Michell, Le Week-end

In this episode, English director Robert Michell discusses his latest movie, Le Week-end. Michell has directed for theater, film, and television, in a variety of genres and styles from Austen adaptations (Persuasion, 1995), romantic comedies (Notting Hill, 1999), to the recent Hyde Park on Hudson (2012), a historical piece exploring some of the intimate details of FDR's life before World War II.

Written by scenarist Hanif Kureishi, Le Week-end follows the tale of a couple's return to Paris, the site of their honeymoon, on their 30th anniversary. Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan star opposite each other in this bittersweet study of enduring love. In the interview, Michell touches on the challenges of low-budget filming in the City of Light and the acting legends that pieced the story together.
