The Criterion Collection welcomes Andrew Haigh's 2011 feature film to their Blu-ray line-up this August.
In an early announcement to retailers, Criterion says 'Weekend' will hit Blu-ray on August 21.
Rarely has a film been as honest about sexuality—in both depiction and discussion—as this tale of a one-night-stand that develops into a weekend-long idyll for two very different young men (exciting newcomers Tom Cullen and Chris New) in Midlands England.
The Blu-ray will feature 1080p video, a DTS-HD Master Audio 2.0 soundtrack, and supplements will include: New program featuring interviews with Haigh, Pontikos, producer Tristan Goligher, and actors Tom Cullen & Chris New; New interview with Haigh on the film's sex scenes; On-set video footage shot by New and others, and two scenes from Cullen's and New's auditions; Video essay on the film's set photographers, Oisín Share and Colin Quinn; Cahuenga Blvd. (2005) and Five Miles Out (2009), two short films by Haigh; Trailer; and a booklet featuring an essay by film critic Dennis Lim.
Suggested list price for the Blu-ray is $39.95.
