Independent filmmaker Gregg Araki has probably set a record for low budgets in this current feature The Long Weekend. It came in at around $5,000 and yet was shown in legit moviehouses to respectful (if not overwhelmingly positive) reviews. As with his other movies, the central characters in this one are gay, lesbian or bisexual, and the setting is in Los Angeles. The story concerns the efforts of angst-ridden gay man to cope with his bisexual lover's antics, and the parallel efforts of a lesbian woman to ditch her dimwitted girlfriend.
