Score out of ten (whole numbers only): 7
Andrew Haigh has built with "Weekend" a film that is insightful, naturalistic and intimistic. The viewer becomes almost a third person, viewing a relationship blossom and grow from what is apparently a casual encounter. The film lives from their closeness, their interactions. Both actors are great, Tom Cullen and Chris New, create characters that are flawed, real and anguished. This is a small gem of a film waiting to be discovered.
