    Two men wonder if they've found love or just had a drunken hookup in this drama from British director Andrew Haigh. Russell (Tom Cullen) is gay, but most of his friends are straight, and after a long night of boozing with his pals, he stops by a gay club on his way home and picks up Glen (Chris New). The next morning, Glen explains that he's an artist, and begins interviewing Russell about their night together for an installation project he has in the works. Alcohol has made Russell's memory of the previous evening a bit fuzzy, but just as importantly, he's not as comfortable as Glen when it comes to opening up about his sexuality or his personal thoughts. Glen, on the other hand, is willing to share, but there isn't always a lot of depth in his exchange of ideas. Over the course of the next two days, Russell and Glen spend a lot of time talking, exploring the city, and exploring one another, but neither is sure if they're at the start of a new relationship or just avoiding the end of a one-night stand, especially after Glen mentions he's planning to move to the United States soon. Weekend won the Audience Award in the Emerging Visions program at the 2011 South by Southwest Film Festival. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
