Nerdophiles had the pleasure of chatting with the author and star of the Netflix film, The Weekend Away. Written by Sarah Alderson and directed by Kim Farrant, this book-to-screen adaptation follows Beth (Leighton Meester), a new mom whose marriage is on the rocks and she’s still settling into life after leaving her career for motherhood. She goes to Croatia to visit her best friend Kate (Christina Wolfe) when things get dark, wild, and her best friend mysteriously missing. Every person is a suspect in my eyes and Beth’s main goal is to find Kate and get back home to her new baby.
In our interview, watch Leighton Meester and Sarah Alderson talk about Beth finding herself again after motherhood, the art of adapting a thriller of this kind, and so much more!
The Weekend Away is streaming now, only on Netflix!
