Long Weekend follows Bart (Finn Wittsrock) and Vienna (Zoe Chao) two people who meet accidentally at a showing of a retro film. Not really at the film, it’s after the film ends and Bart who is out of work is asleep after drinking a bottle of liquor.
Vienna wakes him and they begin a very hot courtship all over the beautiful parts of los Angeles as the background and atmosphere that brings them together. It has all the makings of a traditional romance but each character has a secret (hers is more extraordinary) than we might expect.
They look at stars and play with sparklers in a park. Slowly we get the idea hat there is a reason why his doctor is calling him over and over again.
Bart is down, he has been evicted from his apartment and is living in a friends garage. Doug (Damon) is the friend who listens and helps. Vienna on the other hand has a place of her own and a purse full of cash.
We learn late in the film that she plans to purchase stocks that she states will do very well over the next 30 years. Together they place the new purchases in a safety deposit box in a local bank.
About half way through the film we see waisted time in what I would call filler. Zoe Chao strums on a guitar and sings, they dance in the parks and frolic in bed acting like animal characters. By that point in time, what is interesting is who is she and where does she come from.
During a hospital stay Bart begins to learn what appears to be the truth about Vienna, but the story line doesn’t end there.
The twist is interesting, but the banter getting us to the answer of who is she and where does she come from takes too long.
