The Weekend (2018)
Critic Reviews for The Weekend
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.
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.
Filmmaker Stella Meghie kicks The Weekend off with a strained, unfunny standup set from Zamata's character that instantly sets a tone of forced artificiality...
