When a group of summer camp friends reunite for a weekend send-off, the spirit of youth returns and love is in the air.
A truthful, spontaneous, and funny ensemble film that perfectly captures the experience of growing up, and growing apart from those you will always call friends.
Before their childhood friends get married and move across the country, eight Towunga Pines summer campers (and a few disoriented newbies) take over a rental cottage in upstate New York for one last weekend of fun in the sun. Written by the full cast & creative team, and shot entirely in real-time, this romantic character comedy is a true-as-life portrait of friendship that will stay with you long after the gang all says goodbye...
From Sunnyside Films and FilmBuff, the indie comedy THE WEEKEND is available on iTunes, created by and starring an amazing company of actors, produced by Michael Izquierdo and directed by Brian Avers.
“Avers & company hit a note of playful confidence… with a vibe of real-life controlled chaos… enjoyable… genuinely disarming & clever… strong performances…” – Andrew Lapin, The Dissolve
“The Weekend is a charming, hilarious movie that will have audience members retelling their own stories as soon as the credits are done rolling. The Weekend could be one of the most realistic, honest and hilarious movies.” - Kelley Cantrell, MovieGeek
