About the Movie
After meeting one lonely Friday night at a bar, Russell (Tom Cullen) and Glen (Chris New) find themselves caught up in an lost weekend full of sex, drugs, and startling emotional connection. In the fast-fleeting couple of days, the reservations of earnest Russell come head to head with Glen's more strident sexual identity, and the romantic outlooks of both men are affected deeply. When Monday comes, despite the unexpected intimacy they've established, can the pair survive the mundane challenge of separation?

Top Critics' Reviews
Fresh: In just a short period of time, a weekend hookup tests the boundaries each man has set for himself.
Fresh: One of the truest, most beautiful movies ever made about two strangers.
Fresh: The organ that "Weekend" is most concerned with isn't the one you might think, but the human heart.
Fresh: Its final moments offer a vision of what a contemporary romance can achieve: an appreciative gasp of truth, a wet-eyed hope for more.
Words can't describe...
I can't thank the people who made this movie possible especially the director, Andrew Haigh. Words can't begin to describe how good this movie is. The theme is universal. Gay or straight - doesn't matter. If you've ever felt a raw, emotional connection to another person, you can relate. Hands down, the best relationship drama ever created.
I don't think I can write a review to do Weekend its proper justice.
Beyond the visual treat, this movie isn't just some trite depiction of a gay couple, gay sex, gay chance, gay whatever, it's a gorgeous and simple representation of spontaneity, self confidence, and the views of a minority in a judgmental setting. While studying experiences of their pasts, the main characters grow together in the short time that they're allotted before separation; these arguments prompt the audience, gay or straight, to question the importance of differences between themselves and others. These differences should be celebrated, not condemned, and I commend the entire cast and crew for the amazing job they've done.
Best romance in a while
I'm not gay but that didn't stop me from being blown away by this amazing movie. This is one of the most truthful, moving depictions of a relationship I have ever seen in a film. One of the best movies I have seen in a very long time.
