A one-night stand develops into a weekend-long idyll for two very different young men in the English Midlands, in an emotionally naked film that's both a snapshot of the complexities of contemporary gay living, and a portrait of a love affair.

Very English. Even with subtitles is often difficult to understand. Does not match American experience very closely, and is in reality quite foreign to Americans.
I never understood the point of the movie.
Very unhappy with all the depictions of cocaine use as a harmless pastime.

Weekend is one of those rare films that combine incredible film making with excellent acting and a storyline and dialog that are as good as a well crafted novel. An unusually frank and funny story about two people who think they've got themselves and life mostly sorted out beginning to discover that their views of love and the world and their behavior are just coping mechanisms to get through life.

As the story evolves and the main characters reveal more of themselves you begin looking back on what you've already seen in the film and realize the reasons they did something or live a certain way.

That may sound dry and clinical but Weekend has some of the best dialog I've seen in a film in years. And more importantly that dialog is delivered with incredible acting skills by the two main leads, it feels like two people actually talking.

Truly fantastic and worth viewing by anyone who likes excellent independent film.

Outstanding! Worth four stars. The director has portrayed a gay couple in the right light. I learned a lot, and enjoyed the affair the two men have over the weekend. The explicit gay sex is accurate, and enhanced the movie. Well done. I also encourage anyone viewing this movie to also view the additional items by the director - it truly added to the movie. I watched the film again after viewing the additional content.
