‘Weekend’

Why: Andrew Haigh’s tiny indie film Weekend is riding a wave of hype fueled as much by what the film is as by what it’s not. Chronicling a weekend shared by two just-met British men—one semi-closeted and placid, the other out and prickly—Weekend is a non-campy, non-outreach-oriented, intimately life-size portrait of homosexuality as it is lived. It’s not perfect—certain plot-forwarding devices stick out like sore thumbs in this mumblecore-sized film—but the performances are lovely, the sex is sexy, and the whole thing adds up to something that feels new.
