The Weekender

I'm very pleased to announce that this autumn I'll be filming "The Weekender". It's the next feature film from Director Andrew Haigh, who recently had a huge success with his feature length docu-drama "Greek Pete".

Here's how he describes it -"On a Friday night after a drunken house party with his straight mates, Russell heads out to a gay club, alone and on the pull. Just before closing time he picks up Glen but what’s expected to be just a one-night stand becomes something else, something special. 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 a brief encounter that will resonate throughout their lives.
The Weekender is both an honest and unapologetic love story between two guys and a film about the universal struggle for an authentic life in all its forms."

Sounds HOT, I think you'll agree.
