Flings With Benefits: Watch the New Trailer for SXSW Fave Weekend
The SXSW/Outfest favorite Weekend, starring newcomers Tom Cullen and Chris New, explores what happens when a one-night stand turns into a meaningful bond -- and when the two lovers in question happen to be sexy, hirsute gentlemen who sometimes look like each others' doppelgangers. In other words, this movie should be taught in schools. View the trailer for director Andrew Haigh's touching (not cloying!), honest (not earnest!) film after the jump.
Not a millisecond's worth of overacting in this color-unsaturated trailer. Even if one character is pressing the other to speak meaningfully into a tape recorder, I already believe the chemistry here more than I did in, say, Blue Valentine where Ryan Gosling's Situation-reminiscent mugging always took me out of the scene. I can't find a thing wrong here. Maybe I could've been invited to hang out with the lead duo?
Weekend comes out September 23 in New York.
Verdict: Why wasn't I invited? Why? 🙁
