Andrew Haigh’s film is about a chance meeting between Russell (Tom Cullen), a lifeguard at a community pool in Nottingham, and Glen (Chris New), who works in an art gallery. They’re very different people, Russell a more cautious, easygoing type and Glen talkative and abrasive. But the two hit it off after bumping into one another in a bar and spend the night together in Russell’s flat. The night extends into the weekend, during which they chatter on about their lives between bouts of lovemaking. A casual pick-up in a club evolves into 48 hours of introspection, revelation and soul-searching fuelled by drink, drugs and sex. Though the men are drawn as very different personalities, after a time it appears that their relationship could become a lasting one.
