The 25 Best Independent Movies Streaming on Netflix Right Now

Weekend (2011)

Director: Andrew Haigh
Stars: Tom Cullen, Chris New, Laura Freeman, Jonathan Race, Loreto Murray

It's rare that a film fixed around a gay relationship captures such international attention, but Weekend is a film of particular grace and honesty. Set during a whirlwind two days, Weekend follows closeted Russel (Cullen) through a weekend spent with an artist, Glen (New), who's leaving for a two-year art course in America come Monday.

What starts as a one night stand turns into something much deeper as the film explores the intricacies of sex and the difficulties of the closet.
