Weekend

 (2011)

Weekend Blu-ray delivers great video and superb audio in this excellent Blu-ray release

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. The Weekender is both an honest and unapologetic love story between two guys and a film about the universal struggle for an authentic life in all its forms. It is about the search for identity and the importance of making a passionate commitment to your life.

For more about Weekend and the Weekend Blu-ray release, see Weekend Blu-ray Review published by on where this Blu-ray release scored 4.0 out of 5.

Weekend Blu-ray, Video Quality

  4.0 of 5

Presented in its original aspect ratio of 1.85:1, encoded with MPEG-4 AVC and granted a 1080p transfer, Andrew Haigh's Weekend arrives on Blu-ray courtesy of British distributors Peccadillo Pictures.

Shot on digital video, Weekend tends to look a bit soft at times. During a few of the outdoor nighttime sequences, in particular, is where certain limitations are easy to spot. Nevertheless, the high-definition transfer conveys pleasing depth and fluidity, with most close-ups looking very good. The color-scheme is also convincing, though the blacks never look lush and well saturated (but this is a source limitation, not a transfer weakness). Some extremely light banding is noticeable during the club footage, where Glen and Russell first meet. Occasionally, extremely light digital video noise also pops up, but it is hardly ever distracting. Lastly, there are no stability issues to report in this review. All in all, despite some minor source limitations, Weekend's transition to Blu-ray is indeed most satisfying. (Note: This is a Region-Free Blu-ray disc. Therefore, you will be able to play it on your PS3 or SA regardless of your geographical location. For the record, there is no PAL or 1080/50i content preceding the disc's main menu).


Weekend Blu-ray, Audio Quality

  4.5 of 5

There is only one audio track on this Blu-ray disc: English LPCM 2.0. For the record, Peccadillo Pictures have provided optional English SDH subtitles for the main feature.

Weekend is primarily a dialog-driven feature. Naturally, the two-channel loseless audio track is quite appropriate. Generally speaking, the dialog is clean and stable, but occasionally - for example, during some of the party scenes - it could be somewhat difficult to follow. The sporadic unevenness and dynamic fluctuations, however, are part of the film's audio design, not weaknesses of the loseless track. For the record, there are no sync issues or audio dropouts to report in this review.
