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.
"(WEEKEND) is a tender, humane film, with an easy, unforced cinematic language: a film that doesn't try too hard." Peter Bradshaw, THE GUARDIAN
★★★★ "Sexy, provocative, engrossing." Ben Walters, TIME OUT LONDON
**CRITICS PICK "Astonishingly self-assured, unassumingly profound. It is one of the most satisfying love stories you are likely to see on screen this year." A. O. Scott, NEW YORK TIMES
"WEEKEND is one of the year's very best in any genre." Michael Philips, CHICAGO TRIBUNE
"A small, prefect thing. A likely classic and not just a gay one." Chuck Wilson, LA WEEKLY
"Naturalistic without being ineloquent, heartfelt yet sentimental, WEEKEND is the rarest of birds: a movie romance that rings true." Eric Hynes, VILLAGE VOICE
"Impressively directed and superbly written, this is an emotionally engaging and strikingly naturalistic romantic drama with terrific central performances from newcomers Tom Cullen and Chris New." VIEWLONDON
"Terrific low-key turns from the two leads inject their growing bond with genuine emotion, making this a love story that will get under the skin of romantics everywhere." Philip Wilding, EMPIRE
"WEEKEND might be a small film recounting an intimate relationship, but it speaks to the grandest of ideas." HOLLYWOOD.COM
