The people behind Weekend should be smiling today, as the little film that could not only hit £200k at the UK box office over the weekend but it’s just picked up two nominations from the London Critics’ Circle Film Awards.
Director Andrew Haigh is up for Breakthrough British Filmmaker while Tom Cullen is in the mix for British Actor Of The Year. It’s a great shame the film missed out in the British Film Of The Year category, but that’s more testament to what a good year it’s been for UK film than anything about the wonderful movie.
Other LGBT allied nominations include Pedro Almodovar’s The Skin I Live In in the Foreign-Language Film Of The Year category, and Christopher Plummer up for Best Supporting Actor for playing an elderly gay man in Beginners.
