Nights and Weekends | Chicago Reader

Nights and Weekends

A young couple (writer-directors Joe Swanberg and Greta Gerwig) enjoy sex on the kitchen floor, but soon afterward problems emerge: the needy woman, visiting from New York, worries over the future of their long-distance romance, while the man, who lives in Chicago, has obligations that mean even more time apart. The first part of this love story is a slog, but the second is interesting: one year later, they've split up and the guy is involved with someone else, but sparks fly when he looks up his old flame during a business trip to Manhattan. What isn't said is more important than what is, as the camera returns again and again to the woman quietly watching her ex and trying to conceal her longing. 80 min.
