Comedian Sasheer Zamata and Actress Kym Whitley lend their black girl magic in the new film ‘The Weekend’. 29-year-old comedian Zadie (Sasheer Zamata) finds herself still in love with her old boyfriend Bradford (Tone Bell) and still using him as fodder in her stand-up act, even though he’s now dating the very different Margo (DeWanda Wise).
When Zadie agrees to travel with the couple to her mother’s (Kym Whitley) bed and breakfast for a weekend getaway, disaster seems like it could be imminent. But instead, especially after the arrival of handsome solo traveler Aubrey (Y’lan Noel), it begins to feel like maybe third-wheeling it was the best idea Zadie ever had.
THE WEEKEND is in select theaters and On Demand September 13
