Ryan’s review published on Letterboxd:
Few films in my lifetime have impacted me both creatively and personally like Weekend. It can't be said just how important this was for 15 year old Ryan, still trying to make sense of everything I felt, to suddenly find the exact vocabulary I was missing through watching this film. I can still feel the pain in my chest after showing this to the first boy I ever really let myself like, only for him to call it 'slow and stupid'. Lol.
I'm forever chasing after Andrew Haigh's dragon. At least a small piece of everything I've ever written was born out of Weekend, and I am so grateful to have found it when I did.
