Le Week-End 

Directed by: Roger Michell :: UK/France
In Engligh
Comedy/Drama :: Rated R :: 93 minutes

During a two-day escapade, diffident, wistful Nick and demanding, take-charge Meg careen from harmony to disharmony to resignation and back again as they take stock of half a lifetime of deep tenderness -- and even deeper regret. A surprise invitation from Nick's old friend Morgan (Jeff Goldblum), an amusingly eccentric American academic with a fancy Parisian address, soon leads them to an unexpectedly hopeful vision of what their love and marriage might still become.

This magically buoyant, bittersweet romantic comedy, starring two of Britain's national treasures, is a new peak in the ongoing collaboration between screenwriter Hanif Kureishi and director Roger Michell, following VENUS, THE MOTHER and THE BUDDHA OF SUBURBIA.

The Bozeman Film Festival and Ranchwater Films host a very special Friday night screening of "Winter In The Blood." Introduction and post-film Q&A with directors Alex and Andrew Smith

A young, self-destructive Montana Blackfoot Indian named Virgil First Raise, his mind groggy with alcohol and tormented by childhood memories, discovers that his wife has left him, taking with her his prize rifle. He sets out to find her, but what he's really searching for is his own uncertain identity and a glimpse of salvation. Filmed around the Hi-Line communities of Havre, Chinook, the Fort Belknap and Rocky Boy Reservations and all points between, Winter In The Blood was filmed with strong community and tribal involvement. Directed by Montana natives and twin brothers, Alex and Andrew Smith ("The Slaughter Rule".) An adaptation of award-winning writer James Welch's first novel (1974), Winter In The Blood stars Chaske Spencer, well known as "Sam Uley" the alpha male leader of the werewolves, in the popular THE TWILIGHT SAGA film series.

"That sense of reality and storytelling coming together is especially strong." -- Kenneth Turan, L.A. Times
