Lindsay Duncan's high expectations

Lindsay Duncan has said she is not surprised that more mature relationships are now being featured on the big screen.

The actress stars opposite Jim Broadbent as a married couple in their late fifties in new movie Le Week-End.

"There are a lot of us [grown-ups] about," Lindsay, 62, said. "And we go to the cinema and still have quite high expectations for our lives, we're that generation."

The film is the second time Lindsay has played Jim's wife - the first was in the TV film Longford.

"We know each other and we get on very well. We try not to make too much fuss about it," Lindsay said.

The film, written by Hanif Kureishi and directed by Roger Michell, also features Jeff Goldblum as an egotistical American writer and was shot in Paris.

"We were seeing the city every working day - we were on the streets and shooting in restaurants, so we could never forget where we were. It was heaven," Lindsay said.

:: Le Week-End is in cinemas now.
