The Weekend Away, Netflix’s latest thriller has made its land on the streamer. This 90 minute movie will take you on a rollercoaster of an emotional ride with Leighton Meester at the wheel.

Meester plays Beth, one half of a best friend duo that are vacationing in Croatia together. However, when her friend, Kate (Christina Wolfe), goes missing and is later pronounced dead, Beth’s vacation goes from a good time to an actual nightmare.

To make matters worse, Beth is being considered as a viable suspect by the authorities and is therefore forced to remain in the country. So what started as a trip meant to relax and revitalize in a beautiful and sunny locale turns into a race against time for answers.

But, as per usual with movies where the setting plays such a big role, the question of whether filming took place in the actual location has come up. Was The Weekend Away filmed in Croatia? Here’s what we know!
