BROKEBACK in a minor key
Two gay men pick each other up in a disco in Nottingham and get to know each other over the next two days. They talk, drink, do some drugs, make love, meet people and discover how much they have in common. Russell, who is out to his friends but not to his workmates, would like to get into a relationship. Glen, out to everyone, has had a relationship go bad and is about to move to the US, so he’s not looking to get involved.
Andrew Haigh, a writer/director from the Mike Leigh school of intense naturalism, shows us the intricate dynamics of a relationship which just happens to be between two men. The interaction is more important than the sex (which is relatively low-key). This is – obviously! – a gay movie, but it could just as easily be a straight movie.
Tom Cullen and Chris New give finely judged, sensitive performance as the two men who fancy each other, like each other and come to realise that they could very easily come to love each other. WEEKEND has a more intimate, less ‘epic’ story than BROKEBACK MOUNTAIN, but the viewer is invited in a very similar way to watch two people fall into a love affair that may or may not have a future. This is a small movie that packs a big punch.
Lust. Uncertainty. Self-preservation. The possibility of something greater.
“Weekend” is simply one of 2011’s best. It is a film that transcends the patently glib set-up of its narrative and delivers something that reverberates with insight and sincerely felt emotion. In the vein of “Before Sunrise”, “Weekend” lets the story flow from the words of its characters, chronicling the trajectory of their relationship with a breathtaking intimacy that wipes away any sense of artifice. The rapport that steadily materializes between semi-closeted, emotionally cloistered Russell (a remarkable, utterly convincing, beautifully expressive Tom Cullen) and jaded, brashly assertive Russell (a terrific Chris New) after an ostensible one-night stand does not hinge on any cute contrivances; it is illuminated through casual conversation, awkward silences, shared drug binging, unbridled sexual engagements. They interact with each other under the disillusioned awareness of how tenuous their relationship ultimately is, yet remain in the dark about where their respective feelings will take them as they spend the next few days together. Andrew Haigh lets both of these characters breathe instead of stultifying them with rehearsed speeches or facile behavioral patterns. He films their solitary, day-to-day routines with an almost poetic sense of observation, delineating them firstly as two distinct characters who begin to bond in unexpected ways. Through an exchange of personal stories, Russell and Glen patch together discernible impressions of the experiences which directed their individual personalities and respective stations in life. They bicker over the acceptability of heteronormative decorum, express incompatible sentiments about the meaning behind sex and the necessity of relationships, and we watch with blistering closeness as an ineffable gravity pulls them closer together despite a mutual recognition that Monday will only bring separation. One could fault the screenplay for relying on familiar motivations for how the lead characters behave in the final act, but this is more than made up for by the sheer emotional force of the film’s penultimate scene–rarely has goodbye been rendered with such artless, stirring pathos. And rarely has a story of falling in love been so told that challenges our very perception if its portrayal on screen.
