There are countless films about people falling in love, but when you see Weekend you realise just how rare films are that make a sincere attempt to catch what it really is like to fall for someone, without sentimentality, forced cuteness or cheap emotional manipulation.
This is the rare love story that has real emotional truth about it. The fact that it is about two men who fall for each other is almost secondary to the way the film catches the universality of what it is like to fall in love.
Weekend is not about exceptional people, just about two average, if smart and likable men, tentatively getting close to each other and it catches lightning in a bottle.
This is not to play down the importance of Weekend as a gay film. Gay issues are touched upon and some good political points are made about gay men in todays society, but it's never in a didactic way.
Nothing here feels forced, there is a naturalness about the acting and dialogue, real chemistry between the two leads and a sense of lightness about the filmmaking that yet never feels trivial.
Weekend catches the little moments of life beautifully and it finds beauty in the everyday. The acting here is simply amazing from both leads but Tom Cullen as the more quiet, introverted Russell has a touching vulnerability about him and gives what I would regard as the best performance of the year by a male actor.
It's all there in tiny details, there is never a moment when you don't utterly believe what goes on in his heart, it's all there in his eyes and the most subtle shifts of expression.
No doubt this performance will be overlooked in favour of more histrionic turns this year, but this is what truly great screen acting is about.
I think I fell a little bit in love with him myself. The IMDb summary of the film does it no justice whatsoever.
This piece of art depicted the most genuine and sincere definition of love in any motion picture that I have seen. Besides the fact that the script was well-written, the actors carried the story to fruition in their slightest of gestures, glances, and articulations.
You really fall in love with Glen and Russell and want them to be with each other. There are parts where you'll laugh, parts where you might tear up, and parts where you might wonder if you've ever felt what these characters feel for each other.
There are some wonderful scenes cinematically as well. The ending is satisfying and resonant of real life, which is a nice change of pace when compared to other love stories.
This is the movie that you should see, and I hope you will. I watched this film after a friend highly recommended it.
The gay film festivals and critics' awards and nominations it's been getting are much deserved. They have a one-night stand but realize they share much more than animal attraction.
They spend a weekend together trying to figure out whether or not they can turn this into something "concrete". It's a 'talkie' for excellence; if you love films like "Lost In Translation", "Before Sunrise" and "Before Sunset", you'll probably be smitten by this as well.
Special kudos go to the excellent protagonists, Tom Cullen and Chris New, whose on-screen chemistry is palpable, moving, and simply a pleasure to watch.
This is a weekend you shouldn't sleep through. Just back from seeing Weekend at a mainstream cinema in London and simply wanted to say that the other reviewers here have hit the nail on the head perfectly.
This film is literally flawless - so real, so well acted, naturalistic dialogue spoken utterly naturally. It captured my 20s in a bottle.
Thank you to all involved. I'd forgotten cinema could be this fantastic. I liked the fact that the film's location was kept anonymous - most appropriate, given that the film was so accurately observed and depicted that it could have been about many of my friends, all over the UK.
Finally, the moments of passion were handled sensitively, but, again, so realistically. One particularly stunning moment was the cut away and sudden fast forward to the morning - somehow capturing instantly the bleak moment that follows ecstasy, but doing it in a non-showy way.
I will be watching for more of Andrew Haigh's work. But this is not a "gay" movie, and people who stay away from it because they think it has a gay agenda, or that it has nothing to say to them, or who are simply uncomfortable with the sight of two men having sex, will deny themselves the pleasure of seeing a film with a universal message about what it's like to be lonely and the search for meaningful human connections that kind of loneliness motivates.
It's not that Haigh avoids addressing the complications of being gay in the present day. Part of what I admired about the film was that it put being gay, and the constant energy it takes on the part of gay men to either fight or ignore the ignorance and hostility they must constantly endure, in a context that anybody can understand.
The film's central character, Russell Tom Cullen , has been raised as a foster child in a "straight" environment. His foster brother knows he's gay and is accepting of it, but even at that, Russell's time with his brother and his brother's family only accentuates the desolate fact that the kind of "normal" happiness his brother enjoys the solidarity of a strong marriage, children is something that at best he will have to fight for or at worst will be denied altogether.
The bitterness this harsh reality can create in gay men is illustrated in the character of Glen Chris New , a crusader who believes happiness in marriage is a sham perpetrated by the straight community and that attempts at finding contentment and satisfaction in a life partner are akin to tilting at windmills.
Cullen and New deliver award-worthy performances, so it's a shame that this film's size and subject matter will deny it any kind of major awards attention.
The film is actually breathtaking at moments, albeit in an unassuming way, in its frankness and its ability to capture perfectly in words ideas about the way our societies treat relationships, commitments and love that I had only half articulated to myself.
It would be easy to believe that Haigh found two non-actors roaming the streets, asked them to star in a movie, gave them situations to play out without a script, and filmed the results.
It's that authentic. I hope people see this movie. Grade: A. Two gay men pick each other up in a disco in Nottingham and get to know each other over the next two days.
They talk, drink, do some drugs, make love, meet people and discover how much they have in common. Russell, who is out to his friends but not to his workmates, would like to get into a relationship.
Glen, out to everyone, has had a relationship go bad and is about to move to the US, so he's not looking to get involved.
The interaction is more important than the sex which is relatively low-key. This is - obviously! Tom Cullen and Chris New give finely judged, sensitive performance as the two men who fancy each other, like each other and come to realise that they could very easily come to love each other.
This is a small movie that packs a big punch. At last, a movie about falling in love, is not cute romantic comedy gregorybnyc 30 December Pay attention, they are completely understandable!
Andrew Haigh's writing and direction is so well observed and detailed the viewer is left astounded at the simplicity of his vision and the skill of his masterly direction.
Tom Cullen and Chris New play Russell and Glen with utter conviction, all the more impressive in their love scenes, and in their moments of intimate touching because one of them is straight.
This must have been nerve-wracking for both of them and yet they handle these scenes with restraint and with believable ardor.
I loved the scene where Russell is visiting his straight best friend and finally admits he is deeply shaken by Glen.
His friend is perfectly happy and insistent to drive him to the railroad station. The only scene that didn't completely work for me was their night of boozing and drugging.
I just didn't see Russell indulging in cocaine and while I know some people think it makes the mind clear, but there are no real revelations during this long night.
Reminded me of another long filmed sequence--that endless wedding reception in Rachel Getting Married. A real misstep. The chemistry between Russell and Glen's characters goes a long way towards the film's excellence.
There is nothing cute, or silly, or humiliating or just plain dumb between these two very likable men. The camera allows you to discover them and the movie is a real gem for it.
What a "lovely" a phrase used, to much effect, by one of our characters surprise! Agree with other postings that this film is one of the best gay films And I have been wading through many clinkers, alas, in the past 35 years of watching gay themed movies.
The two men, and their situation, becomes increasingly engrossing. They are real and the dialog rings so true.
Some with long memories, or a love of classic films, might think this instant classic is reminiscent of a long-ago movie.
But without spoiling or leading you on, you'll have to consider that after you see Weekend. Two thoughts - Why hasn't this film been attracting larger audiences?
And I wish we had another 30 minutes to spend with Glen and Russell. Enjoy first rate filmmaking. Congratulations to the writer-director and the two leading men.
IanRusk 11 January Boy meets boy: boys have 2-day fling that turns into something deeper than either character anticipated.
Russell picks up Glen both early 30 somethings in a gay bar and takes him home. After a night of passionate sex, the two characters connect on many levels and have the beginnings of a deep relationship, but an unexpected obstacle — at least for Russell — arises.
Will there be a happy ending for both characters? More loneliness for Russell? Weekend offers up a realistic gay love story with meaningful dialogue, realistic scenarios.
Anyone who has spent much time in the gay life-style will likely find much to relate to in this simple yet powerful story that perfectly illustrates the trials and tribulations of many gay men.
One of the best gay movies I have seen. Some nude scenes by both male leads and some fairly graphic simulated sex scenes, but nothing too overboard.
StevePulaski 21 June Russell Tom Cullen is a cleaned up, well-mannered man, working as a lifeguard, who, after one night at a house party, is searching the streets looking for someone to talk to and hook up with.
He ventures into a gay nightclub, and picks up the aspiring artist, Glen Chris New , a man more comfortable and open about his homosexuality.
Russell and Glen become surprisingly close and what was destined to be a simple one night stand evolves into one of the most meaningful and tremendously potent on-screen romances from independent cinema in a long time.
Andrew Haigh's Weekend is a delightfully different picture, about two gay men who take on a fondness for each other in the least conventional sense.
They wind up equally understanding each other, taking each other for who they are, and become more open in their conversations than I'm sure lifelong friends have.
To say how and why it happens is so subjective it's not even wholly explainable. Sometimes, a person catches you by surprise and, despite only knowing them for a short time, you can feel heavily sympathetic towards their problems and issues, begin to talk openly with one another about personal subjects, and, after a while, begin to become transgressive in your discussions, just talking about whatever you feel like.
Perhaps it is just that other person's presence that makes each of them feel so comfortable and open.
What Russell and Glen discuss over this forty-eight hour relationship probably hasn't even been vaguely brought up when talking with family.
Cullen and New are exceptionally perfect in their chemistry together. One of the most poignant scenes in the film comes a little after the hour mark, when they are discussing gay rights with each other.
To discuss the treatment of gays in society and in the media is obligatory when dealing with a film focusing on a same-sex relationship, but being that Weekend is a British film, it has a welcomed take on the subject, showing us that passionate relationships with two people of the same gender exist all over the world.
We learn Glen must board a train on Monday and from there on out, is Oregon-bound to take a two year long art course.
It is quite possible that this adds to the rush of discussing as many topics as possible before the inevitable morning comes.
The crisp photography of the picture is to be commended as well. There are some evocative, crisp location and involving scenery shots scattered throughout the entire picture.
Haigh's directorial effort is truly an astonishing work of indie-art, as it shows photography in not a pompous light, but as a background delight to the foreground extravaganza we are enduring.
It is too complimented by some delightful framing, where it seems everything inside of the frame has some sort of true, bountiful significance.
Another talk of true satisfaction is when the Glen tells Russell to act as if he was his father and come out of the closet to him.
It is at that moment, after the deed is done on Russell's part, Glen utters the most satisfying and beautiful line in the entire picture.
To repeat it here is an act of criminal spoiling. Weekend is a naturalistic and touching film, whether you're gay, straight, bisexual, or whatever orientation.
This is a film that can give you relationship advice and life guidance no matter what you're orientation may be. This is one of the wisest and least condescending independent films I've seen this year.
Starring: Tom Cullen and Greg New. Directed by: Andrew Haigh. Contains spoilers After all the praise that has been given to this film, I was surprised by finding myself becoming so bored by it I struggled to make it to the end.
The film consists of two broadly uninteresting people having mostly downbeat and unoriginal conversations. One, Glenn, is a 24 year old aspiring artist, though what we learn about the quality of his mind and the limited range of his consistently solipsistic thinking suggests he will be without success.
He complains that straight people aren't interested enough in hearing about gay sex, that if he did a show about him talking about gay sex then straight people wouldn't come, that there aren't enough gay story lines on TV, that heterosexuality is shoved in his face, that marriage is too conformist, that gays are too pigeon— holed etc ad nauseum.
And many other things the average gay man will have heard expressed times before, with as little depth. Glen's friends hold him back, he thinks, seeing him only as he used to be, whereas he feels he is constantly changing.
He hates Nottingham. He doesn't want a boyfriend. The protagonist, Russell, is more endearing and essentially likable, but most of the time words need to be dragged from him, sometimes in a mumble.
His relationship with his best friend Jamie is much dwelt upon, but when together he barely holds a conversation with him. He maintains a habit of writing down his depressing sexual encounters with closeted or cheating or just unhappy men.
Several of these are later read out, Glen and Russell taking in turns. Most of the film takes place inside Russell's small and dreary flat.
The director's choice of a washed out colour palette of grey and blue compounds the dreariness. Outside, people shuffle up concrete paths.
Russell lives there in a vacuum. Glen has some friends, but from what little we see of them, they are neither interesting or pleasant and he doesn't like them much.
Really there is little of anything in their lives. What others found deeply romantic, I experienced more as claustrophobic and was unconvinced by the depth of foundations of the connection.
Both characters are lonely and slightly unhappy and fancy each other. But it was easy to imagine the relationship being broken off, whether or not Glen does ultimately go to Portland the film's only plot point.
The most exciting thing they do together is have a backie on a bike. The sex is believable and unerotic, to my mind at least, and even the drugs are no fun.
In this film taking large amounts of cocaine only makes people crave gloomy and irritable conversations with each other; I would suggest another dealer.
These men in their mid 20s talk a great deal about whether and when they feel embarrassed or ashamed to be gay, and about coming out and the extent to which they are out.
Which hasn't been my own experience of what English gay men in their mid 20s talk about with each other yes, I've been one.
As well as a lack of plot, there is no cinematography to speak of that could be described as filmic. It could easily be made for TV, except there's deliberate camera shakiness and blurring.
There's little in the way of a soundtrack. The film is very well acted; the leads play their parts convincingly, it's the characters that lack interest.
There is most of the time a strong sense of verisimilitude. And that has been the biggest source of praise for the film. His everyday life, the relationship with his best friend, Giovana, and the way he sees the world change completely with the arrival of Gabriel.
A sexually awakening gay teen athlete finds himself in a budding relationship with his mutually attracted relay race teammate.
Martin seeks for a temporary job at Eugenio's house. When they recognize to be childhood friends, Eugenio offers him work for the summer.
A power and desire game starts and their relationship grows beyond their friendship. Tim and John fell in love while teenagers at their all-boys high school.
John was captain of the rugby team, Tim an aspiring actor playing a minor part in Romeo and Juliet. Their romance Patrick returns to San Francisco in search of closure and resolution regarding his relationships with Richie and Kevin.
Two brothers develop a very close relationship as they are growing up in an idyllic and happy family. When they are young adults their relationship becomes very intimate, romantic, and sexual.
Jamie is a shy teenager, often bullied at school. His neighbour Ste has a rough time at home, being beaten by his father and brother. This issues bring them together and they find that what they feel for each other is more than friendship.
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.
Just before closing time he picks up Glen but what's expected to be just a one-night stand becomes something else, something special.
That weekend, in bars and in bedrooms, getting drunk and taking drugs, telling stories and having sex, the two men get to know each other.
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 search for identity and the importance of making a passionate commitment to your life. Written by Andrew Haigh. This is the most real cinematic version of guys falling in love in recent history.
I'm a filmmaker myself, and was blown away by the caliber of the writing, directing, acting, cinematography, editing, and music of this fantastic film.
There's not a false note in the movie--everything rings true, even the ending no spoilers here. Actually, it's at a higher level than almost all films playing anywhere this year.
Where did this film come from? Go UCLA! I look forward to seeing more of Haigh's work. Sign In. Keep track of everything you watch; tell your friends.
