This is a bittersweet film. Two academics whose love life is about as exciting as their careers, which are about as exciting as paint drying, decide it’s time to relight the fire. They head to Paris where they once honeymooned, in their effort to find what has been lost. Jim Broadbent and Lindsay Duncan star as the central couple and are amazing. Jeff Goldblum has a supporting role and is equally up to the task as an old friend from college who just happens to be in Paris at the same time. The dialogue is masterful and drives the film from beginning to end. Le Week-End is emotionally rich and when at its best, hysterical. At Boedecker.
From the Teatro Carlo Felice. Starring Daniela Dessi, Mario Malagnini and Roberta Canzian. At Boedecker. — Boedecker Theater

This documentary film is composed of many stories from all around the globe. What ties these stories together is that each explores our relationship to water. From the Colorado River’s desert delta, evidence that it no longer reaches the ocean, to the floating abalone farms located along China’s Fujian coast, this film will take you places you never dreamed of and show you sites you could never have imagined. This film will leave you haunted by the importance and growing scarcity of our most precious resource, water. At Boedecker.
