The Weekend NR CC

3.0 out of 5 stars (29) IMDb 6.2/10

Marian (Deborah Kara Unger) and John Kerr (Jared Harris) are expecting an old friend, Lyle (David Conrad) for a weekend visit to their beautiful upstate New York home. Emotions run high since it is the one-year anniversary of the death of John`s brother, the handsome and charismatic Tony (D.B. Sweeney), who had also been Lyle`s lover. Marian, who is still inconsolable after losing Tony to AIDS, is upset when Lyle brings his new boyfriend, a young artist, Robert (James Duval). Meanwhile, the situation is just as tense at the Kerr`s neighbors` house, where oft-widowed, free spirit Laura Ponti (Gena Rowlands) gets a surprise visit from her resentful, angry daughter, Nina (Brooke Shields), and her married lover, Thierry (Gary Dourdan). Matters worsen when the battling mother-daughter duo joins the Kerr household for a dinner party, where the pain-riddled diners engage in a messy emotional showdown.

I really enjoyed this moving. Guess I didn't read the cast too well prior to watching. I was pleasantly surprised by seeing Brooke Shields. It's a slow paced movie, a lot of time spent on developing the characters which I love.

I don't really know what to say about this movie.. I am happy I didn't pay $12 to see it at the movies. A little to slow for me and I kept waiting for more of a story to develop but it didn't. I do like Gena Rowlands so it wasn't all bad ... Maybe just something to watch while you are multi tasking :)

This is a very well acted film. The characters are given time to really connect so it is slow moving but well worth ones time.It has a soothing silence to it.Sweeny really shines as a well loved gay partner. I think it is some of his finest work.

I laughed, I cried, and I laughed again... and cried again!.. and then I smiled.
The Weekend stands as a slightly understated film that made quite an impression - and splash.
It's a story of loss, resentment, desire, pain and forgiveness.
Gena Rowlands is simply charming as Laura Ponti, a seasoned lady who lives her life as she chooses without judgment. A young James Duval delights as Robert, the doomed new lover of Lyle - who recently lost the love of his life.
If you like paced dramas with a hint of peril, The Weekend is for you. At least your heart will smile a few times.

Wonderful cast, well-written and well-presented. I don't know why this movie hasn't been rated more highly by viewers. Gena Rowlands gives her usual amazing performance and Brooke Shields, all grown up, is at her best in this film. It is a film that is moved forward more by character development than by plot. With characters well worth observing, this was enough for me!

I was looking to watch some old good movie. I chose this one only because of Gena Rowlands. I was pleasantly surprised. The movie is breathtaking - beautiful and very smart. Acting is superb. I enjoyed it tremendously.
