Winner of Audience Awards at both SXSW and Outfest 2011 and the opening night selection of Brooklyn’s acclaimed BAMcinemafest, Weekend is a startlingly authentic love story, featuring the talents of two incredible new actors and the unique work of a fresh new voice in filmmaking, Andrew Haigh. After a particularly bibulous evening with some straight friends, Russel (Tom Cullen) sets out to a local gay watering hole. Just before the closing time, he picks up Glen (Chris New) for what he presumes will be just another one-night stand. Instead the two find themselves caught up in a lost weekend full of sex, drugs, and intimate conversation. Although they have conflicting ideas of what it is they want from life and certainly how to get it, they form a startling emotional connection that will resonate throughout their lives. Winner of the Emerging Visions Audience Award at SXSW 2011.
