Movie Info

Stand-up comedian Zadie (Sasheer Zamata) is still reeling from her last breakup three years ago, but is trying to stay friends with her ex-boyfriend Bradford (Tone Bell). She invites him on a weekend trip to her judgmental mother Karen's (Kym Whitley) country B&B and he brings his new girlfriend Margo (DeWanda Wise) along with them. Their awkward love triangle gets complicated by the arrival of handsome and newly single guest Aubrey (Y'lan Noel).

Meghie is adept at sliding between subplots and mixing her characters into talky combinations, all the better to maximize the film's slim 86-minute running time, but it's Zamata and her Zadie who steal nearly every moment.

Laced with tart humor and sharp observations about black female identity, the majority of them delivered with spiky insouciance by Sasheer Zamata.

Meghie constructs a sharp comedic portrait of a woman learning to take charge of her own destiny.

The Weekend gets off to a decidedly rough start that eventually becomes just another part of the movie's shaggy dog lovability by which I was, at least partially, won over.

For those who saw Meghie's stellar debut "Jean of the Joneses," "The Weekend" is the proper follow-up, a brutally funny and whipsmart comedy that goes so many places that few others have, even though it is largely confined to one location.

What works so well in The Weekend is the hilarious and authentic script written by Stella Meghie.
