Nights and Weekends


With Joe Swanberg in person

Dir. Joe Swanberg, Greta Gerwig. 2008, 79 mins. With Greta Gerwig, Joe Swanberg. Swanberg and Gerwig co-wrote, directed, and starred in this similarly raw follow-up to Hannah Takes the Stairs, a fragmented, sometimes unnervingly true-to-life glimpse into a disintegrating 21st century relationship. Nights and weekends are the times that long-distance lovers James (in Chicago) and Mattie (in Brooklyn) carve out for their rambling cellphone chats and decreasingly satisfying hookups. Flash forward a year: post-breakup, James moves to New York for a job, the couple (“of what?” she asks) reconnects, and they find things more complicated than ever.
