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.
But filming people talking on a bus would also have a sense of verisimilitude. The question is what would be the point?
Where is the creativity? Are the leads being gay sufficient justification for the film? I certainly don't feel it told me anything about life, or made me see life in a slightly new way.
The sense it brought to mind was of being stuck in a corner at a disappointing and dingy house party, being spoken to at length by someone dull, but being in two minds whether to leave yet as it's a long journey home and I'm not yet drunk, so I hang around.
I'm not English, male, or gay, so I probably missed some subtle points in this film, but I liked it a good deal. Seven is a good rating for me, and this almost qualifies for an eight.
The story of two new lovers getting to know each other after a drunken one-night stand is touching and revealing of the workings of the human heart.
Not-quite-closeted shy Russell and in-your-face Glen are complex characters who change in the weekend they get together.
Talking about points of disagreement helps each understand more about what they really feel about various issues.
I felt the filmmaker captured what it is to be a real person having real discovery-type conversations. I had a quick flash of Before Sunrise, when that film worked for me.
The lovemaking scenes are indeed lovemaking. I was bothered by Brokeback Mountain's because the sex in it seemed so brutal and I thought more than once "and that doesn't equal love; I'm unconvinced these two are in love at all" ; but here, I felt I was witnessing two sane or as sane as most of us are , healthy men interacting sensually and falling for each other, the sex being part of the increased tenderness and vulnerability between them.
Probably if you're willing to watch this film at all, knowing the subject matter in advance, you'll be okay with the level of detail in the sex scenes.
There are many moments not sexual which are more intimate and moving. Smart writing in those post-sex intimacies that comprise the bulk of the film.
I also liked the framing of many shots, particularly of Russell in his solitary moments, as the framing told the story of his alienation so clearly.
At one point I flashed on Jim Jarmusch--if someone gave him some color stock, it could have been a Jarmusch moment. I particularly liked the insert of a scanning surveillance camera, as it heightened the sense that Russell is always aware of and reacting to the panopticon of homophobia all the time.
Again, I thought, there is real intelligence in this filmmaking. I was reluctant to see this film.
Wasn't in the mood for yet 'another gay movie' Weekend gives an honest, heart-warming and eye-opening birds 'eye view of what it's like for many gay guys that try to make a connection with someone they really fancy.
Unlike most romances, this isn't a divided story where we follow each character in their own corner as they're unavoidably maneuverer into each other's arms.
Excuse the comparison, but thankfully, this is not your typical rose garden-type Jennifer Aniston rom-com. For those who have never seen the inside of a high-rise council flat, in England, this would be a chance to get an intimate glimpse of what it's like inside and out.
The setting complements the characters and the actors' nontheatrical yet intense and hyper-realistic performances, perfectly.
In an industry where audiences are saturated with American English, it was most refreshing to see two artists maintaining their characters authenticity — even to the point of being spot on with those unique northern accents Not many American thespians can boast with that!
Whilst, some may think the use of language is one of the only pitfalls of this film, truth is, a skillful ear will enjoy the subtleties and colloquialisms that enrich the dialogue Weekend is one of the best examples of how riveting British Film really can be.
Director Andrew Haigh applied his camera, storytelling and art direction with the eloquent orchestration of a true master.
It's filled with nuance, sensitivity and each frame is clean and airy with a timeless sensation, capturing the misty, small-city normality of Nottingham like a series of well-executed still photographs.
Clearly, I'm impressed and I sincerely hope that this 'gay film' crosses over to the mainstream. It touches on almost all elements of the modern dating scene Not just for gay guys — however, the themes will probably ring more true for them us.
A story well told and it left a lasting impression on me. I watched this film probably around a year ago and haven't had the desire to watch it again despite it being set in Nottingham where I work.
The problem I have with so many gay films or portrayal of gay characters is the colour-by-numbers approach. The guys are always pretty good looking, fairly well off, drug taking, club hopping and sexually over- active.
This may be the reality for some gay men but it isn't for everyone. The amount of drinking, drugs, sex and clubbing in films like this is completely unrealistic - especially to those who don't live in big cities, frequent gay bars or sleep about.
Last night I watched '4th Man Out' and whilst it still is a by-the-numbers sort of film, at least the main character felt real and relatable.
He wasn't a druggie, he wasn't a gay clubber, he wasn't camp or a tart - he was a mechanic with straight male friends who enjoyed sports and just wanted to meet someone.
I am sure to be attacked here for a low rating and for appearing to be critical of this film. The awkwardness of the lifeguard's insecurity yet acceptance of his sexuality was crushing when the end comes And that was equally admirable and great.
The music was in keeping with the film, the photography natural and unobtrusive a clever trick in such a confined space of a location and the performances bravely underplayed and palpably real.
I am sure the writer had a reason for this and I would love to know why Both actors were incredible for which they deserve a Capellaro7 7 August What a lovely work of film.
A very beautiful, very real and very bittersweet story - telling of the pains and passions of love that comes to us so unexpectedly and then, ultimately, leaves us.
An all too familiar feeling for a yearning heart. From stunning cinematography to a painfully relate-able story - this film will always allow for it's viewers to access the nature of it's being and it's beauty.
For every human understand what it is to yearn for something so much, that when it's gone, we feel empty. That, is film.
Weekend is a great testament to the vision and the work of a talented cast and crew. I give this film my highest recommendation and feel that it's simplicity is it's genius.
Thank you, Mr. Weekend is one of those rare films that combine incredible film making with excellent acting and a storyline and dialog which are as good as a well crafted novel.
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 the main characters 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 improvisational or like two people actually talking.
Truly fantastic and worth viewing by anyone who likes excellent independent film. While the drink and drugs are used without typical made-for-TV consequences the film doesn't glorify their use, the drink and drugs are obviously part of the the way the main characters deal with a deep desire for love which they haven't been able to find.
It's so easy to dismiss a film like this as nothing different from so many indie films about gay romances. Truth be told, I really haven't seen many films of this kind, but this is a truly fantastic film that is among the very best of It's one of those completely natural films where nothing seems ingenuine or artificial.
