Movie Info

In this independent drama, Varson (Kenny Young) is a week away from marrying his long-time girlfriend Kiya (Saadiqa Muhammed), and things ought to be going well for him. But that's hardly the case; Varson is having serious trouble negotiating the corporate battlefield at work, and his friend Tyco (Eric Lane) has taken up residence on his couch (and isn't taking the hint that it's time to leave). But these problems seem like small potatoes when Varson is informed that his name appears on a list of men who slept with a woman who has tested positive for HIV, leaving him to wonder if he's contracted the AIDS virus. One Week was the first feature film from writer and director Carl Seaton; leading man Kenny Young also contributed to the screenplay.

Critic Reviews for One Week

All Critics (10) | Top Critics (7)

Although, at times, the sluggish action of One Week seems to creep by in real time, the film is kept believable by honest, low-key performances and a script that sounds like the way real people talk.

Top Critic

Deserves to be given time for the word to get out on just how good it is.

Detroit Free Press
Top Critic

The film's important message is delivered without excessive sentimentality or being overly preachy.

Hollywood Reporter
Top Critic

A rather crude affair that feels like a student film.

New York Post
Top Critic

Holds together in spite of its flaws.

New York Times
Top Critic

Hits its target and does it the old-fashioned way, not with didacticism but with a solid story and, for the most part, well-crafted, authentic characters that deepen over the course of the film, giving genuine emotional power to the film's resolutions.

Audience Reviews for One Week

Mitigates its gimmicky predictability and de rigueur uplift by resisting the lazy sentimentality of most AIDS dramas.
