Weekend (2011)

Directed by: Andrew Haigh
Country: UK

Plot: After a drunken house party with his straight mates, Russell heads out to a gay club. Just before closing time he picks up Glen but what's expected to be just a one-night stand becomes something else, something special.
Quick comment: A fearless movie  putting on the screen a story of a gay relationship between two men who just have a weekend to figure out what they really feel for each other. It touches on certain crucial issues concerning the clash between assumed gays and society. We are before an outspoken movie...simple but effective.
Relevant Awards: moviezone award (Rotterdam); jury award   (Ghent); special mention (Dinard).
