WEEKEND is a drama about two men who meet in a club and form a relationship over the course of a weekend, before one of them moves abroad.


There is a sex scene which includes sight of a man apparently masturbating his partner, after which we see the man lying on his back with liquid resembling semen on his stomach. There are also strong verbal sex references, including one man recalling having sex with a married man: "I wasn't sure I could get a hard-on, he wanted me to suck his cock, get me to cum in his mouth".


There are several scenes of drug misuse, many of which show people smoking marijuana joints. There are also some scenes in which men snort cocaine and a scene in which men blow cocaine into each other's mouths.

WEEKEND also contains frequent strong language ('f**k') and two nonaggressive uses of very strong language ('c**t').
