WEEKEND STILL

Romantic, tragic, heartbreaking and euphoric, this is an emotionally invigorating odyssey that held me spellbound all the way through, the movie elegantly building to a beautifully poignant coda that is as tearful as it uplifting.

Sara Michelle Fetters, MovieFreak.com

Its seeming aimlessness makes it that much more real, deftly avoiding romantic cliches and sentimentality, thereby creating something infinitely more beautiful and moving.

Matthew Lucas, From the Front Row

A remarkably assured, charismatic, distinct and refreshingly unabridged romantic drama about two gay men finding love at the unlikeliest of times.

Jamie Neish, HeyUGuys

NOTE: IN ORDER TO MAKE THE SCREENING INCLUSIVE OF OUR ENTIRE COMMUNITY, THE 7PM THURSDAY, JUNE 24TH SCREENING WILL PLAY WITH THE SUBTITLES ON.

Runtime: 
97 minutes

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.
