They encounter Jeff Goldblum as a former student of the husband's, who is now a successful writer living in Paris.

The film follows a middle-aged British couple, Meg and Nick, who are celebrating their 30th wedding anniversary. They leave their home in Birmingham and head to Paris for a weekend. But this is not just any typical romantic getaway. With their marriage already on the rocks, they are hoping that this holiday will help them put things into perspective.

On the train journey, they reminisce about their past, but also argue about their struggles with money and Nick's failed career. Things don't look bright as they enter their small, shabby hotel room.

Their stay in Paris goes from bad to worse as they start to realize that they are living in a lie. They visit the famous tourist spots, but nothing feels the same. They begin to question their entire lives, and the weekend starts to become a test of their relationship. They argue and bicker, with Meg expressing her disappointment in life and Nick feeling that he has failed his wife.

However, things begin to change when they meet Nick's old university friend and former student, Morgan (Jeff Goldblum). A conversation between them turns into an invitation to a dinner party at Morgan's apartment, where they encounter a group of successful writers and artists. The dinner party becomes the turning point for Nick and Meg.

As the weekend progresses, Nick and Meg try to find happiness and closure before they return to Birmingham. The film provides a realistic look at aging and the complexities of a long-term relationship, showing the ups and downs of marriage in an honest and raw way.
