Weekend was one of the most beloved romantic dramas by European critics last year.

The picture is written and directed by Andrew Haigh, who has been production assistant and editor neophyte in works such as: Gladiator, Black Hawk Down, Kingdom Of Heaven, all of them destined for the male public.

This new venture is a warmhearted romantic gay drama. In which a consanguin... read more

Just when you start to despair for the future of a movie genre, along comes a specimen to prove it can still be found in the wild. Andrew Haigh’s remarkable Weekend (IFC Films) unassumingly, almost offhandedly, demonstrates the continuing existence of the romantic comedy, if a comedy can be defined as a story in which, by whatever amusingly circuitous route, love eventually wins out.

Description: On a Friday night after a drunken house party with his straight mates, Russell heads out to a gay club, alone and on the pull.

It is a brief encounter that will resonate throughout their lives. Weekend is both an honest and unapologetic love story between two guys and a film about the universal struggle for an authentic life in all its forms. It is about the se ... (more)

"Before Andrew Haigh created the HBO comedy hit Looking, he made this movie about two men hooking up over a long weekend. What at first seems simply like a hot one-night-stand slowly grows into something more personal, with both men being frank about not wanting to be in a relationship yet talking themselves into a series of frank revelations and undeniable rapport. Along the way, the sex scenes become more explicit, with one shot involving a man ejaculating all over himself leaving little to the"

"It's definitely an unorthodox narrative and pacing method. But omg, some of the politics this film tried to reinforce, particularly the POV of that of the Chris New character, just made me wanna put my fist through the wall. MAN he was annoying. Still, parts of it are funny, other parts sweet, and the sex is kinda steamy. It's not 'oscar bait' and doesn't try to 'overreach' it's target audience by launching some misguided socio-political crusade, and I have a lot of respect for this film becaus"
