Whether you're male or female, gay or straight, Weekend is sure to speak to you, and deeply, about aspects of your own life and loves. This intelligent and moving film reminds you that low-budget realism can get into the emotional places that bigger films can't. It's one of the best, and most individual, of the year
Haigh’s film is written with a shrewd, unpretentious feel for the way young people behave when they’re getting to know each other, shot with a keen eye for urban solitude, and completely nails its seemingly modest tasks
Weekend“ has something urgent to say to both gay and straight audiences about the windows of opportunity in our lives
Sexy, provocative, engrossing and occasionally ornery, it should appeal to anyone whose curiosity about someone new has provoked them to question their own identity
Astonishingly self-assured, unassumingly profound. It is one of the most satisfying love stories you are likely to see on screen this year.
Weekend is one of the year’s very best in any genre.
This is a smart, sensitive, perceptive film. It underlines the difficulty of making connections outside our individual boxes of time and space.
One of the bravest, most honest and most accomplished stories of gay love and sex ever rendered on film.
I love what Haigh manages to achieve in his Weekend. The movie is political and challenging, but in an organic way.
Naturalistic without being ineloquent, heartfelt yet sentimental, Weekend is the rarest of birds: a movie romance that rings true.
It’s about love’s essence, and the pain of its absence.
This complex tapestry of a film written, directed and edited by Andrew Haigh, depicts a weekend hookup that evolves into an intense, intimate sharing of selves and ideas.
A beguiling second feature from writer/director Andrew Haigh that establishes him as an impressive new voice in British cinema.
I hate to damage so fragile a work with overpraise, but gay or straight, if you don’t see yourself in this movie, you need to get a life.
Life is too short to miss a movie this touching.
A work of surpassing emotional insight and artistic accomplishment - one of the best of the year.
