So much movie can be made with so little plot, given sufficient humanity and dramatic tension. That's the case with Andrew Haigh's eloquent chamber piece. show more
One of the truest, most beautiful movies ever made about two strangers. show more
A ticking stopwatch hangs over Weekend that amplifies the intensity of every conversation, every fight, every drink, every copulation. In other words, it's a device. show more
Beautifully written and acted. You can feel the chemistry between these characters. An insightful representation of the first magical encounter and what happens after that when their stories unfold. A very sensitive and intimate story.
Amazingly touching and authentic movie. I want to recommend this movie for several reasons, but the most compelling reason is how realistically it represents the interaction of two gay men. For people who would like insight on what a snapshot of how two men can meet, interact and effect each other, this is the film to see. The plot, dialog, acting and production have such realism, authenticity and integrity, it almost doesn\'t feel like you\'re watching a movie. Compared to so many terrible \'gay\' films, which fall into stereotypes, cliches and with poor writing, acting and production, this film is in another league. If society can rise above prejudices, this film should be getting Oscar buzz!
too much drinking...too many drugs....poor sound editing.....half the audience went out to use the toilet and missed nothing by the time they came back....the last 10 mins were the best
