Gregg Araki

The Long Weekend (O'Despair)

Edition 1990
87' - 1989 - Drama - Dialogue: English
Director: Gregg Araki With: Brett Vail, Maureen Dondanville, Andrea Beane
Michael, Rachel and Sara never really got over the fact that The Revolution sold to them as undergraduates by Patti Smith and the Sex Pistols turned out to be just another pile of media-hype. Stranded as they are in the 80s, they're more than a little alienated, cynical and just plain bored. They've lost touch with one another, with themselves, and are having a hard time connecting with their love partners as well. Needless to say, when this emotionally unstable group spends a weekend together, they most certainly are not going to sit around listening to old Motown Records.
