“I couldn’t be more proud of you than if you were the first man on the moon.”
Honestly, I haven’t seen a movie in a while that I’ve really connected to. Weekend told the true story of how 3 days with a guy in gay, is like being with him 3 weeks. (Granted you spend your day and night with him for a weekend i.e.)
No fairy tale sugar coating; practical romantic stuff happens like this and it’s easier to believe, easier to relate. Palatable. Palpable. Pragmatic.
I think my time will come.

“A man standing up with another man in front of everyone saying “I love you, and I want to get married”, I think that’s a pretty fucking radical statement. I mean standing up and saying “I want to spend the rest of my life with you” when everybody is looking at them saying that it’s wrong, it’s disgusting, it’s sick. I mean, people say that we should go to hell. For this, go to, go to fucking hell?! Why do people fucking say that, do you know what I mean? So actually, standing up and saying “You know what, I love you. And fuck you, and fuck you, I don’t give a fuck what you think”, that is pretty fucking amazing.”

Weekend (2011)

you know what it’s like when you first sleep with someone you don’t know. you’re like a blank canvas and it gives you an opportunity to project onto that canvas who you want to be.

Weekend is a heartbreaking film. Brings a lot of unacknowledged aspects of life to the forefront of your mind. Really brilliant.

Yes, brilliant film.

WEEKEND - Go and see it, gorgeous story, beautifully filmed!

Directors Statement:
I wanted to tell an honest, intimate and authentic love story. I wanted to express that feeling of both fear and excitement that comes with the possibility of something new. I wanted to watch these two guys slowly fall for one another, fall for each other’s differences almost as if they were uncovering missing pieces of themselves. I wanted to capture those moments that two people share when they truly start to engage with one another, gently focusing in on the struggles at the core of their characters. Russell and Glen are two people navigating through life in very different ways but both are looking for same thing - to find their place within the world around them. They are trying to work out who they are, what they want and how they should define themselves, in private as well as in public. Obviously when dealing with two gay characters many of these issues become especially pertinent and it was important to me that I tried to say something truthful about the complexities of the modern gay experience. However, just as there are many ways to define a person, the same can be said of a film. I hope that rather than narrowing the resonance of the story, the gay context helps to amplify the themes felt at the heart of Weekend - those struggles we all face regardless of sexuality.
