A lost cult classic of the Australian New Wave of the 70s, Long Weekend is a sinister, eerie tale of nature at its most dangerous. Urban couple Peter (John Hargreaves) and Marcia’s (Briony Behets) marriage is on the rocks. As a last ditch attempt to save their relationship, Peter arranges for the couple to spend the long weekend together away at a remote beach on the Australian coast. With Marcia preferring to stay someplace more luxurious, their romantic getaway gets off to a bad start – and then they hit an animal on the lonely road. When they finally reach the beach, the urbanites begin making themselves comfortable in their new surroundings, but they soon discover that nature is not in an accommodating mood. As one disaster after another emerges, the tensions between Peter and Marcia rise to the surface. Preempting Open Water by 25 years, Long Weekend is a chilling meditation on modern life, from the writer of Razorback and Roadgames.
