This film generated a lot of buzz at the recent SXSW festival in Texas (which means the sales agents were doing their job). Former editor Andrew Haigh’s sophomore effort follows two British blokes – one out; the other not so much – as they meet, shag, talk, ‘get twatted,’ and stir some strong emotions in each other over the course of three days.

Haigh’s first film, the docu-drama Greek Pete, divided opinion with some finding its year-long account of a London rent boy too scripted and hollow. Haigh seems to have found his groove with Weekend, discarding any pretense of reality and focusing on what is most personal to him.
