We were joined by Leighton Meester on the Popternative who stars in the mystery thriller film The Weekend Away, coming to Netflix on March 3rd. Based on the book with the same title by Sarah Alderson, the film centers around a weekend getaway to Croatia. The vacation goes awry when a woman (Leighton Meester) is accused of killing her best friend (Christina Wolfe), and her efforts to get to the truth uncover a painful secret.

The Weekend Away also stars Christina Wolfe (Batwoman), Luke Norris (Poldark), Ziad Bakri (The Bureau) and Amar Bukvic (Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard).
