Weekend

Film stills

Padarom taip: aš būsiu tavo tėtis, o tu man prisipažink, kad esi gėjus.

Nekreipk dėmesio, kad mes ką tik mylėjomės.

 

 
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.
