Main program

Weekend / Andrew Haigh

On a Friday night, after hanging out with his straight mates, Russell heads out to a gay club, alone and on the pull. Just before closing time, he picks up Glen and that weekend, in bars and in bedrooms, getting drunk and taking drugs, telling stories and having sex, the two men get to know each other. It is an encounter that will resonate throughout their lives.
