Worthy, honest and with impeccable good intentions, nevertheless feels interminable.
was great story line , was a bit slow at first . A couple of gay guys dating , was focused on the developing relationship between them and how changes of time . In the they discover they want more then friendship .
A slow movie. was quite formulaic but just went nowhere. Felt let down based upon the hype of this
A couple of gay guys, one uncomfortable with his homosexuality, the other celebrating his sexuality, meet and form an unexpected bond which may or may not endure. Pretty good look at the need we all share for love and companionship regardless of our sexuality. 3.5 stars
Very ordinary watched 10 min then turned it off!
What I liked about Weekend was the chemistry between Tom Cullen and Chris New. Their dialogue, which I think was improvised, had a spontaneity and freshness that is hard to maintain if comprehensively scripted, also their intimacy had a naturalness that convinced me of its authenticity. I credit that to the actors and the director, Andrew Haig, who allowed both leads to maintain the film’s momentum (even still it drags at times); he didn’t have much choice, the story line was focused on the developing relationship between them. ‘Weekend’ is set in Nottingham, East Midlands, where our protagonists meet in what they expect to be a casual affair but develops into something so much more.
Decent movie. Not what I was expecting, but none the less, a much enjoyed film!
A very intelligent, honest film with a very real story.
A brief gay romance in Nottingham provides the crux of this film. I thought that the performances were so naturalistic. Very impressive. Unfortunately, the film was dull in places, however the last 20 minutes packed somewhat of a wallop. One of the sex scenes is pretty full on. Music is good and it is well photographed..
Slow-paced maybe, but this love story is compelling in its realism and underpinned by excellent performances. Refreshingly underplayed for this genre; a sensitive and high-quality production.
Another true to life story... I would watch it again!
Amazing movie. Totally unexpected. So true to the way things are that I loved every moment.
A heart-felt evening between two gay men that condense an intense relationship into about 24 hours. If you want to know what it's like to be gay and therefore marginalized at this point in our Western culture, check this out.
More enjoyable than first expected, easy viewing and seems very realistic!
As a busy mum, I thought Weekend was one of the best films I've seen all year. Absolutely convincing and understated and natural and just so involving. It's as good as reading a really great book where you feel you know the characters and think about them afterwards - that doesn't happen with movies very often but Weekend is that good. It's filmed in such an intimate way, I'm really curious about whether it was scripted or whether the actors are just fantastic improvisers because the dialogue was just so natural, so believable. Loved it - can't recommend it highly enough.
Enjoyable viewing, great acting and storyline. Be prepared for some reasonably graphic guy on guy action.
I really enjoyed this. The actors are brilliant, it seems so realistic - you'd think the two of them really are in love. Definitely worth a watch
This is without doubt one of the best GLBTI productions in recent years. The acting is touching and convincing, the storyline and plot immersive and engaging, and the cinematography flawless. The bond between the two men is? palpable on screen, and from the first, the audience is drawn into their deepest desires and fears. It strikes just the right balance between being overly-sentimental and raw. A definite must see.
