One of the most significant discoveries of this year’s film festival circuit, WEEKEND is a delicate and daring drama that won the SXSW Emerging Visions Audience Award and Nashville Film Festival’s Grand Jury Prize.

 WEEKEND follows Russell (newcomer Tom Cullen, Best Actor winner at Nashville), who, after randomly picking up artist Glen (Chris New) at a nightclub on a Friday night, unexpectedly spends most of the next 48 hours with him in bedrooms and bars, telling stories and having sex, while developing a connection that will resonate throughout their lives. This affecting and naturalistic romance is beautifully realized, earning comparisons to Richard Linklater’s Before Sunrise in its exploration of how two people can come together only briefly, yet impact each other in a profound way.
