  • Its surprisingly structured depiction of this relationship and its many private rituals and performances, which the film's unforgiving style continually strips bare

  • Swanberg and Gerwig also have a gift for constructing the kind of moments rarely seen in contemporary American independent film.

    October 17, 2008 | Rating: B+
  • This movie belongs to its stars, who also wrote and produced. You can't say their acting is good or bad because they are not really acting. They're just being themselves, pubic hair and all.

  • Night and Weekends simultaneously plays like a critique of the mumblecore ethos and an especially obnoxious example of its whimsical tics and insouciant solipsism.

  • These kids fear tripods like most twentysomethings fear neckties.

  • The tight focus on these two people does cross the line from careful attention into claustrophobic narcissism.

    February 10, 2019 | Full Review…
  • [Greta] Gerwig and [Joe] Swanberg's movie is dangerously honest about the territorial dynamics of relationships and the confusion we're left with when they end.

    A bit out there for me, but I still kind of liked it. The leads were great, but the storyline kind of bored me a bit and seemed to just drag on.

    [font=Century Gothic]"Nights and Weekends" starts with Mattie(Greta Gerwig) and James(Joe Swanberg) removing each other's clothes before they can even get all the way into his apartment. James lives in Chicago while Mattie attends nursing school in New York City.(It is never explicitly stated but I think they met in college and live apart due to Mattie's continuing education.) So, they only get a little time to spend together which they try to make the most of.[/font] [font=Century Gothic]Written and directed by Greta Gerwig and Joe Swanberg, "Nights and Weekends" is a pointed examination of the dynamics of a long distance relationship. The film is both emotionally and physically raw, encompassing the push and pull of their particular relationship. Their physical attraction pulls them together while a clash of personalities, especially Mattie's food issues which are petty beyond belief, only serves to make a tough situation harder. In the end, I would have liked some of this to be the result of economics but you take what you can get.[/font]
