Movie: “Weekend”

A one-night stand that becomes something more – an unconventional love story between two young men trying to make sense of their lives.

On a Friday night after hanging out with his straight mates, Russell heads out to a nightclub, alone and on the pull. Just before closing time he picks up Glen. And so begins a weekend – in bars and in bedrooms, getting drunk and taking drugs, telling stories and having sex – that will resonate throughout their lives.

The NY Times: “Perfectly realised. A bracing, present tense exploration of sex, intimacy and love.”

LA Weekly: “A small, perfect thing. Likely a classic.”

Chicago Tribune: “Weekend is one of the year’s very best in any genre.”

Chicago Sun-Times: “This is a smart, sensitive, perceptive film. It underlines the difficulty of making connections outside our individual boxes of time and space.”
