||Synopsis: 1990. The rave scene has arrived from Ibiza and warehouse parties are exploding across the UK bringing phenomenal wealth to the organisers. In Manchester, best mates Matt and Dylan are in their early 20's and long to be more than just punters. As the government moves to outlaw the scene, it's now or never and they quickly rise through the ranks to join the promoting elite. They are taken on a wild journey from the exclusive VIP rooms of London clubs to the outrageous parties in Ibiza super-villas and the hedonism of Amsterdam. It's everything they dreamed of and more. But as their success continues to grow, they attract a more dark and sinister world. Matt and Dylan start to drift apart as they are forced to question the dreams they set out to achieve and their once solid friendship. Written by Benchmark Films

Weekender follows a couple of young guys in Manchester in 1990. The
pair of them are petty thieves but soon realise that they can make some
money if they begin organising their own raves. Everything starts out
well but serious problems soon complicate things.
Weekender is a likable snapshot of the early 90's when dance music as
we now know it was just emerging from the underground. Many people
started going along to raves and got loaded on ecstasy. While the movie
follows the usual trajectory of ascent and descent, similar to films
such as Human Traffic it doesn't have a 'drugs are bad' message.
Instead the villains of the piece are local gangsters who turn up on
the scene and start controlling things with force. Weekender does look
back on those early 90's times with a certain amount of fondness and
there is an effective soundtrack of house music to emphasise the sense
of time. The music isn't the usual familiar array of well known dance
anthems from the time; it goes for a more specific selection of tunes
that ravers would have encountered back in the day.
In fairness there isn't anything overly new in Weekender. Its story
doesn't really offer up any surprises at all. However, it's a good
little movie about an important time in British music history.
