The US Criterion DVD is here and it’s a beauty of a package
Under the Covers: WEEKEND (dir. Andrew Haigh) 2011
“Is it really wrong that I find the whole orphan thing pretty sexy?”
i’m practically Charlie Parker, i’m so jazzed that Criterion is releasing Andrew Haigh’s beautiful romantic drama, Weekend, one of the most sensitive and quietly urgent films of recent years, and a brilliantly directed pas de deux that earns attention far beyond its main selling points (a pivotal film in helping to end the ghettoization of queer cinema). Criterion’s first-run edition is gorgeous, and another credit to their ongoing relationship with IFC.
The Criterion Collection will release WEEKEND on dvd & blu-ray on 8/21/2012.
