From Neil LaBute:
“‘Dirty Weekend’ originally began as an idea for a film that would take place in London, with two work colleagues spending a long layover in that fair city on their way to some other European destination. As time and luck would have it, the film was finally financed but it was necessary to film it in the United States; I weighed all the good tax breaks in the country against which city I’d be least interested in spending any time in and Albuquerque was the hands down winner.
I wanted to make a road picture that had a very small road–in this case, back and forth from the airport to the city–and to create an interesting male-female duo who didn’t have any interest in each other romantically or sexually. This is more of an odyssey where both participants search to find out a bit more about their work partners and, in the end, find out a lot more about themselves.
I’ve called the movie “a coming of middle age story” and I think that subtitle is fairly apt. I always loved the idea of a movie called “Dirty Weekend” but I knew the story had to live up to the wonderful title. I think we’ve done that.”
