This sensual, remarkably observed, beautifully acted wonder is the breakout feature from British writer/director/editor Andrew Haigh (who made his debut with Greek Pete). Rarely has a film been as honest about sexuality - in both depiction and discussion - as this tale of a one-night-stand that develops into a weekend-long idyll for two very different young men (exciting newcomers Tom Cullen and Chris New) in Midlands England. It's an emotionally naked film that's both an invaluable snapshot of the complexities of contemporary gay living and a universally identifiable portrait of a love affair.

Reasons to Buy

  1. This movie wasn't just the most acclaimed gay film of 2011, it was one of the most acclaimed films period.
  2. Weekend won the Audience Awards at both SXSW and Outfest 2011. It was also the opening night film selection of Brooklyn's acclaimed BAMcinemafest.
  3. Newcomers Tom Cullen and Chris New give charmingly natural performances that will hit you right where it counts: your heart. This is one of the best gay romances you're likely to see - and it's directed with brilliant simplistic skill by filmmaker-to-watch Andrew Haigh.

In-House Review - Jun 04 2012
I am such a fan of Weekend that I find it difficult to write about. There is a part of me that feels as though dissecting the film will take away from its magic and power. If you haven't seen it, stop reading now, order your copy and come to it with ... Read More

I was one of the lucky ones to see this masterpiece in a theatre. Having watched gay themed movies for over 30 years, none touched me, seemed so real, and more relatable than Weekend. Even the beloved classic, Brokeback Mountain, spends the great maj... Read More

I waited for a long time to see this movie, and I'm sorry to say I was very disappointed. In the most simplest of terms, this film was unbelievably boring! Were there elements of some good romance, yes. Was the acting good, most definitely. Many ... Read More
