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. Written by
This is another movie about letting go of the past...
Now there's a reason filmmakers keep making movies about this theme. There's a lot to say about it. The Weekend takes its time in revealing these relationships to us and illuminating the ways in which these people grieve. How and when to move on from a paralyzing loss? A dinner guest barges in on a delicately danced minuet of grief, and rattles some things loose. It's subtly written and acted, and the filming is beautiful. Gena Rowlands is masterful. You can't take your eyes off Deborah Kara Unger. All the other actors are wonderful. There are no car chases. I loved it.
