The always watchable Matthew Broderick stars alongside British beauty Alice Eve in the latest comedy from writer/director Neil LaBute. DIRTY WEEKEND sees the pair as work colleagues finding a way to kill some time during a cancelled flight in this first trailer using the filmmaker and playwright’s trademark simple stage-style set-up, and which makes its premiere at next week’s Tribeca Film Festival.
During a layover in Albuquerque, work colleagues Les (Matthew Broderick) and Natalie (Alice Eve) discover more about each other than they ever thought possible. Anxious and irritable, Les is drawn back into the city by past experiences he can’t forget (even if he doesn’t really remember the particulars of his previous drunken adventure). Natalie, refusing to leave his side, follows along as her own secrets are slowly revealed, leaving her feeling both vulnerable and unbound.
Writer/director Neil LaBute fashions a modern comedy of desire and regret, where the allure of past and future dalliances help to underscore the true meaning of a DIRTY WEEKEND.
