Glenn Dunks
Trespass

However, to simply call it 'a gay movie' would commit it a great disservice as the fragmented kaleidoscope of fleeting romantic pains and pleasures should resonate with gay and straight audiences in equal measure.

Brian Gibson
Vue Weekly (Edmonton, Canada)

A romance that finds intimacy in intense conversation but also a very British film about private and public spaces; a potent mix of the sensually intimate and the politically confrontational.

Eric Melin
Scene-Stealers.com

For a movie that bares the souls of its characters so completely, Weekend doesn't unfold like a complicated movie. The dialogue is natural, the sex scenes are tender, and the camera never gets in the way of the story.

Jeffrey M. Anderson
Combustible Celluloid

Probably one of the greatest films ever made on the subject of gay love, not because it deals with issues of homosexuality, but because it simply tells a tender, honest, emotionally potent love story.

Movie Metropolis

Weekend works beautifully in the moment, and lingers long after an initial viewing. It's certainly an affair to remember.

August 29, 2012

Weekend has romance to spare, but also takes a look at the cogs turning under the surface of any thoughtful encounter, however brief.

Matthew Toomey
ABC Radio Brisbane

Through two wonderful performances from Tom Cullen and Chris New, writer-director Andrew Haigh has captured the many emotions associated with a new relationship.

Thomas Caldwell
Cinema Autopsy

Weekend is one of the most impressive films ever made about love. Haigh's confidence and intelligence as a filmmaker, has resulted in a sincere and emotionally engaging film.

In an intimate exploration of its central relationship, this boy meets boy story addresses all the issues of being gay and meets them head on

Knight at the Movies

A stunningly simple, nearly perfect example of a romance movie whose burgeoning couple just happens to be gay.

Antagony & Ecstasy

Simplicity personified... character- and emotion-driven cinema at its purest and densest and most haunting.

Rob Thomas
Capital Times (Madison, WI)

Part of the brilliance of Haigh's film is how specific the characterizations are of his two main characters, how their different natures both allow for the possibility of love and impede it.

Deserves to find a place in the hearts of wistful romantics everywhere, no matter what their sexual preference.

It's splendidly played with an understated intensity that deftly captures the shifting emotional tone of the relationship.

Samuel Wigley
Sight and Sound

Weekend is finally a deeply romantic film, assured of the pleasure that one person can find in another, but rooted in the quirks and textures of contemporary British life.

November 8, 2011

Offers up the kind of subtle, truthful relationship drama that's all too rare in cinema.

Philip French
Observer [UK]

There's a fresh, sweaty, honest, unpretentious air to it, and when they part, with Glen on his way to spend a year working in Portland, Oregon, we genuinely believe that something like love has come into their yearning lives.

Flick Filosopher

Writer-director Andrew Haigh has a delicate, sensitive touch, and this is appealing as a simple peek into modern romance... but there's a sense of wishful thinking -- or even desperation -- that I suspect is not intended here.

Tom Dawson
Total Film

There's a deceptive simplicity to British writer-director Andrew Haigh's poignant, fluent character study, which has already earned comparisons to Before Sunrise.
