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

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

This is 2011's finest romance, portraying honestly observed characters at a crossroads, where love is least convenient, and most necessary in their lives. Weekend manages to convey the true intimacy and folly of two modern gay men in love, fear, defensiveness and rapture without any gimmicks or gushy sentimentality. Don't miss it.

I absolutely loved this film. It is wonderful on so many levels. A very subtle and yet entertaining human experience. It's sexy but so real. Great filmmaking.

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. Full Review
The New York Times
There is also a need for stories that address the complex entanglements of love and sex honestly, without sentiment or cynicism and with the appropriate mixture of humor, sympathy and erotic heat. Weekend, Andrew Haigh's astonishingly self-assured, unassumingly profound second feature, is just such a film. Full Review
Weekend is such a smart, prickly, sexy, inventive film that it critiques itself and critiques its viewers, gay or straight, even as it spins an archetypal romantic fable. Full Review
New York Magazine
I hate to damage so fragile a work with overpraise, but, gay or straight, if you don't see yourself in this movie, you need to get a life. Full Review

In just a short period of time, a weekend hookup tests the boundaries each man has set for himself. Full Review
